My 'Little' Brother's Birthday 21/12
My 'little' brother is now over 50 and over 6ft tall but he's the youngest of the three of them and I can clearly remember the day he was born. He was born at home and although my other brothers had been put to bed I was allowed to stay up and watch ballet on (fuzzy black & white!) TV. My Dad came downstairs just after 10pm & told me I could go up and see the new baby who was by then being bathed by the midwife (in the washbasin) - Apparently, I took one look & said "Oh Not Another Boy!" and stomped off to bed very disappointed.
Anyway, enough of the history lesson......... this is the Birthday card I made for him I had to keep it simple as I had little time to play but I quite like the clean look of it. The rugby player image is a LOTV die cut square - note the 'lumpy' grass I coloured instead of leaving well alone! The stripey paper is Papermania Secret Garden, the 'Cheers' is from my stash (fab for Male cards, I think) and all are layered with silver holographic card from Home Bargains. I layered the silver Craftwork cards sentiment with some of the 'Cheers' paper and foam bits to lift it a bit.
