Birthday 90

This is for my uncle who is turning 90 this week.  I used the vintage look because he is the family historian, and chose the 3 gentlemen because he is the oldest of three brothers.
The gold letter diecuts are stacked with black to create height and make a shadow.  I like the diagonal look the corners create.

Stamp: Tim Holtz/S Anonymous
EF: Cuttlebug
Sentiment stamp: Rosies Studio
Corner die: unbranded
Name die: Spellbinders
Number die: Sizzix
