Birthday Gus

Here's my second card for the Bugaboo Christmas in July Challenge and its for my Dad who is turning 82 on Thursday!
This card is for Sunday's sketch challenge. I printed him off twice and cut out to pop up his head and the balloons. IRL Gus looks hilarious and the inside says "I'm just collecting wrinkles!"
