My Brother's Birthday Card

My brother is turning the big FOUR-OH on the 19th. I was going to make him some depressing card touting how over-the-hill he is, but I decided to do something that was a little more uplifting!

I love this stamp, but I can't remember who makes it...I guess that says something about my age (I am the older sister).

I used my copic markers to color the tree and decided against using fall colors for this card...there was something about leaves dying and falling off the tree that didn't work for me!

Instead, I went for green leaves...life springs eternal. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder and some ribbon, brads, and other doo-dads to make it pretty!
