18th Birthday card for Ross

Here is the card I have made for my best friend Julie's son Ross who will be 18 on the 23rd July. Unfortunately he won't be at home to celebrate his 18th birthday with his family.
Congratulations Ross, I hope you have a great day.

He joined the army just after his 16th birthday and graduated this summer. I believe he will be off to Afghanistan in the near future.

I have made an easel card with dark green card. I printed the green gingham backing paper from a Pink Petticoat download. I edged the gingham with fine line gold peel offs and then stuck onto gold paper, then onto the green base card. I bought the image ages ago, its a decoupage sheet with another image as well which I am saving for next year.
The shape underneath the image has been cut with a nesties die, I think its called inverted circle or something like that. I cut Ross and 18 out using my Cuttlebug Olivia alphabet and the Happy Birthday wording I cut out using my Quickcutz alphabet. I added the same paper and card onto the base of the card to create the easel effect.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
