Happy Birthday To STU!

Today is my lil' bro's birthday....he's 39 and not so little at over 6' tall, but he's still younger than me, so he'll always be my 'lil' bro!!


I used a Dustin Pike freebie image and some digi papers to make his card.....I chose the colours to match the new ribbons I'd just bought in blue and orange, and decided they looked good together.

I followed this Sketch Saturday sketch:

And here's my card:

I used a 6"x6" scallop edged base card, 3 different orange and blue spotty BPs and cute the image using my large tag sizzix die.

I coloured the image with Promarkers, followed the sketch and just added a couple of small button brads some ribbon and Baker's Twine. I made the name/senti using a digi set of alphabet tags and threaded them onto the baker's twine.

I also jazzed up the inside a little!

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for popping by!
