Happy Birthday, Jon

After losing my brother to cancer at age 49 a few summers ago, I have tried to embrace getting older.  I was thrilled to celebrate my 2nd older brother' s birthday.  He's 3 years older than me, my oldest brother was 5 years older.  Anyway,  yesterday was his 51st birthday.   He's special needs and doesn't worry about getting older, it's the excitement of presents and cake,  getting cards from his coworkers, and just enjoying the day.  So I finally took the time yesterday am to make his card and this is what I did.  I wasn't there to see him open it. But I'm sure he took a minute or two to figure out how the sequins, bead, etc. Got in the middle of the card.  The die is from mft stamps.  A lot of fun to work with.   Now, we have 4 more family birthdays this week, so I better get busy on making some more cards to celebrate.

I love this card. Putting the sequins behind it was perfect. I bet your brother loved it.
