My Brother's Birthday Card

Morning everyone, time to share my brother's birthday card.  His birthday was way back on the 7th January.  It was in the mail before his birthday but had a long way to travel so wanted to make sure he had received it first.  He does visit here from time to time.

So decided I wanted something a little different and thought I would try out a tri-fold card again.  Found these wonderful Allison Ellis papers in my collection and teamed it with the brighter blue cardstock...just to add a little fun.  I added stickers to the different frames.  The Happy Birthday stickers were from my prize pack from Michelle H.  All the other stickers are from a variety of sheets that I have had in my collection for a little while.  Also added the three square silver brads.

Here is the card all opened out.

And again from the opposite angle ...the sentiment is a rub-on.

School uniform and school book shopping for me today.  The school year starts next Tuesday for our daughter.  Much easier though as this is down to one and she is now a senior.  They only seem to use books to write notes in.  So pens and papers.
Hope you have a fun day planned.  Thanks for visiting.
