For a man

Time to show one more of my recent stitched cards. As it's for a man, the design is rather simple and not many embellishments were used. 
In fact, I only added a golden sticker for the border and a golden number that is placed on an old-looking scroll. Matching to the golden details is a patterned background paper with silver and golden circles. Actually, it's wrapping paper that caught my eyes years ago in a way I had to buy it, but the things I wanted to do with it are still in my head. Time to use up, I guess :)
The idea behind the motif is that the card is meant for my calligraphy teacher, who is also a srciptor of old writings. That's the way I got to know him a couple of years ago, and he became a good friend in the meantime. Even though I'm spending much more time with his little not-so-little-anymore girl lately, birthdays are a good way of bringing people together every now and then. Here's to te next 50 years!
