Paper Piecing Challenge

My second grandson celebrated his eighteenth  birthday on Monday this week. Over the weekend I had made this card for him. He is a very snapper dresser, he loves vintage clothes, so I thought this card would be well received which I am delighted to say it was. Over at Crafty Cardmaker their theme this week is Paper Piecing which is the technique I used to dress this Kanban gentleman to give it a more fashionable appearance. I used the same papers as were used for the background. They are from a Country Gent by LOTV. I made the bunting, added threaded buttons. The Time Flies and clock with wings are one stamp from Stampendous. Enjoy the Journey is from a Creative Expressions stamp set of Vintage Transport.
