A birthday card for my big brother

I made this birthday card last month for my big brother, Trevor. I didn't post it right away, because I know he checks my blog occasionally (hi, Trev!) and I didn't want to ruin the surprise for him...


I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (kraft, simply chartreuse), stamps (Movers & Shakers sentiments) and dies (Tag Sale #1). The patterned paper is Bo Bunny.

By stitching a pocket, I could add the answer to the question the sentiment poses...


LOL! I love that one!

Thanks for looking!
