As I try several new things (do I want or not... xD) with GIMP and my work I also tried with this. Aside from trying to erase all the snowy details and pixels from the scan and to make it more appealing I went with tiny style typography, because it felt the best to use for this image to me.^^ I changed the colors and colored the eyes as well.
I also went for the Closeup challenge which was the first thing that I remembered while looking through a scan of Vincent (which was the first thing that I noticed while looking an image to make the birthday card XD). I hope that this will satisfy. :3
Dedicated to Winterlion because it is your birthday!! :D I hope that you like it. I wanted to make a Vincent related card, because as far as I know you like that character.^^ So aside from demise and that text, for you I hope that you will have an amazing birthday. ^-^
