Happy Birthday little brother!

Happy Sunday! So, my little brother turned 30 today! We celebrated all day long and enjoyed a lot of food! Now I am here sharing the card I made for him:



Isn't he adorable? That's an old photo of him in a vineyard of my Dad's aunt in Sicily. Love it! The most masculine paper I found in my stash was the Old School Collection minipad from Pink Paislee. That sticker on top is from Crate's Restoration Collection. Here is the inside:


I used one of the Jillibean Soup Sprouts with an "0" on it and just added the "3" sticker from Pink Paislee. That little pocket is sewn to the card to hold some cash. He wanted to get some real good ear buds for his roadwork. All the paper edges of the card are inked with Walnut Stain distress ink for a worn look.

Have a beautiful Sunday everybody and thanks for visiting!!

Hugs,
Vanessa
