A Card For My Brother

Happy May My Friends!

Wow April sure went by fast!  Today is my brother Joe's birthday (yes, I have a brother named Joe America).  I just love this Graphic 45 paper so I decided to make him a birthday card with it.



I have gotten into the habit of using my button punch to make buttons with the small scraps of paper, it is a good way to recycle and use up every bit of paper.  Here is the inside of the card.



Mack, this card is gonna be late; I forgot how to use the regular mail (this is a joke, my brother is a retired Postmaster. ...but it really is going to be late...sorry)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  AND MANY MORE!!!!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
