Does it show my age...

... if I say my baby brother will be 40 next month. Well he is and I've made him a card that really will let everyone else know too.

I got the idea when I was blog hopping but am sorry I can't remember whose blog it was but thought it was a fab idea, so whoever you are thankyou. I wanted something simple in style as though my brother is into cycling I recently made 2 cards for my mum to send to his sons with my 2 cyles stamps and didn't want to duplicate as their birthdays are all within about 6 weeks of each other. The papers are k and company and I love the old toy paper, I know toys weren't really like this when he was little but it just adds to the age thing. The flags are just scraps but I think add to the celebration element and it's not too fussy for a male either.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:-

Sarah Hurley-stitching
Pollycraft -anything goes
crafty calendar -autumn birthdays
Ooh la la- non floral
Papercutz challenge-use 3 designer papers
Paper sundaes- something from your stash(I've had the papers for a couple of years)
