Spent all day making a male birthday easel style

I wanted to make a male easel card so after much  messing about I came up with a male birthday card I had done one similar some time back but just  a waistcoat so I wanted to see if I could make into an easel card and do as suit and shirt

I wanted the inside to look like the trousers of the suit   I wanted to line the jackket with an old newspaper but did not have one so used some pages from an old book I also made a birthday newspaper for the jacket pocket Called "Birthday News"   I added a belt and a buckle also a little key from a chain just fuse wire hanging from the belt I added some tags The bit that keeps the card up is another tag with a stamped pocket watch on it
