Birthday Wishes (TESC#161; PDCC#134) and Happy Birthday, Superman?

Hello Delightful friends and a happy birthday to my brother-in-law, Larry who is 9 days older than me! Got to throw that in there (ha!)  He thinks he is Superman and I have the photo to prove it which is at the end of this post and I may be in trouble...

Here is the final sketch challenge for the Taylored Expressions finale. I'm also entering this into the Play Date Cafe Challenge (Apricot, Canary, Latte and Rose)


The ingredients to my card:  Stamp Sets - Labels of Love and Summer Afternoon (Taylored Expressions); Designer Paper: Prima Marketing Sun Kissed Collection; Bazzill Card Stock; Inks: Memento, Rich Cocoa and Cantaloupe, Distress Inks, Dried Marigold; KaiserCraft lace (cream); ProvoCraft Embossing folder (Cassie's Brocade); Spellbinders Nestabilities Scallop Circle and Standard Circles; The large butterfly is on the paper the other two were fussy cut and adhered with Zots.

My mom and Larry have this one-upmanship thing going every Christmas and she outdid herself on his gift that year (2010), we were rolling on the floor! He is every bit 6'4" so this was quite a sight.  Happy birthday, Larry!

Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend!

You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.  Isaiah 26:3
