My Son's Birthday Card

This Thursday is my son's 36th birthday.  I don't know how he got that old!!  It's like the soap operas where a baby grows to teenager in a record 5 years and becomes an adult a mere 5 years later.  Then they never age for 20 years -- still having babies, too!  Well, that must be what happened here!

Anyway, I am posting my son's card tonight with no fear that he will see it before I take it to him this week.  He never reads my blogs! 

The sketch is one that I saved from Mojo Monday.  I love all the shapes and opportunity for textures and patterns.  The paper came from Latte Matstock by DCWV.  Great colors and designs.  The quote by Aristotle is a Stampin' Up stamp I've had for years.  The flower impression is from Hero Arts that I used embossing glitter on.  Topped off with paper piercing and pearls for style, but I hope is still suitable for a man.  The border is MS iron fence.  The flower design on the bottom half is actually on the paper and I added tiny pearls in the centers.  No coloring at all on this card! 

I love being Scott's mom!  Happy Birthday, son!

What a great card, Barb! Time sure does fly, doesn't it? My daughter will turn 35 this year.
