Unusual teenagers card

This is an unusual card for a 13 year old boy but he's not your normal teenage. His name is Drew and he's into acting in a big way having stared in several shows and just winning his first paying part. He's also a brilliant cartoonist. But the most unusual thing is his appreciation of my handmade cards ! 
His mum has 3 cat's but one particular one Pandora follows him and him alone,  even sharing his bed with him. The piece of newspaper is from an original 1881 copy of the times I picked up in a charity shop for £2. There were the words YOUTH and GRAND THEATRE staring at me so I highlighted them with glossy accents.
It almost seemed shameful to cut it up though but it's much thicker than modern papers which makes it great for making flowers with.

The two tickets were cut and printed using my Craft Robo which I am slowly starting to master.
