Wrapping 60 years in twine

I was asked to make a 60th Birthday card for a man. Why is it always a bit harder to make a card for a man? Even though they certainly do deserve a card as much as women do. I decided to use the current sketch #40 in CAS(E) this sketch challenge as the base.

 I found some really fun paper clips that had numbers from 0 to 9 last week and this was the perfect opportunity to  use them. I think I have to get some more of them.

Then I just wrapped some twine around the paper piece and slide the paper clips on. I really like the outcome. There are a little close ups at then end.

Hope the card was right for the receiver and the party was a success!
