Brother's Birthday...

Hello & Happy Wednesday!

Just wanted to share a card a made for my older brother's birthday that was on Monday! 
I don't usually see him very often and the last I did see him was Christmas Eve.
For years he was plagued with back & neck problems and from all the pain meds, surgeries and therapies, his attitude about things has really changed him in a mean way. At Christmastime, he said he was receiving acupuncture and he has been feeling so much better! Much more easy going and pleasant! Truely a good sign! Hope he continues to feel this good!

Happy Birthday, Greg!

Birthday Card:

Stamps: Class Act Stamps, Perfect Punches
Ink: Early Espresso
Cardstock: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake/Kraft, Very Vanilla, Nautical Expeditions DSP
Accessories: Lg Oval Punch, Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon, Gold Brads, Hot Glue, 2 Sided Tape

Well, I am off to work on my Sketch Challenge card for today so i'll be back later with that!
It's also Dominic day so i'm gonna try to squeeze that in before he arrives!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is a great birthday card for your bro, and I sure hope he's on the path to a pain-free life! That has to be so difficult living in pain.
