The Big '40' ... Happy Birthday Bro !

It's my little brother's 40th birthday on Wednesday, and today's card is for him.


I couldn't resist this cheeky image from Digi Doodle Shop as it reminds me of when we were young!
He always LOVED dressing up, and collected dozens of hats for his role-play, but by far his favourite was the cowboy hat!
He always had such a great imagination, and his kids (now teenagers) and his nieces and nephews all love spending time with Uncle Stu, he's just so funny, and so good with them.


Card details:
Papers - Raspberry Road.
Sketch - Willow Sketchie
Also used: Kraft cardbase (6x6,) Promarkers, computer sentiment using 'Drift Type' font, Distress Ink (Brushed Corduroy,) brads to decorate.

I also decorated the inside of the card, and the cowprint strip on the left has been used to cunningly disguise the split pins of the brads!



I will enter my card into the following challenges:
