Allsorts challenge week 382 - Use Newspaper print

Another Saturday morning and here we are again with a new challenge at Allsorts.
Our sponsor this week is Scrappers Delights.

The lovely Annie has chose the theme for us this week and it really threw me, I had nothing at all related to newspaper print, apart from a newspaper which I really didn't want to use but a lovely Lady in our local craft club came to my rescue.

Now this card is for our Paper Boy, who will be 69 in December, yes 69!
So I thought the use of the newspaper print was very apt for him, he is a friend and neighbour, not just the paper boy.
Woodware stamp, paper pieced with Craftwork Cards newspapers papers
Backing papers - LOTV/ Nitwits - Country Gent
Computer generated headline.
Distress ink around the Happy Birthday which only seems to show up on one side, camera again.
Thanks for calling by and look forward to your comments, good or bad.
