the big 40

i made this card a while ago but have posted it on the pollycraft monday challenge. i like the camper van (i think it is from dimensionfourth) and thought that it would make an ideal 40th birthday card. the papers are a bit retro too so i think it fits in with the '60s' thanks for popping in x
