Happy Birthday DB

 Yep now it's my brother's birthday.  I made him a card and did a post on it but as I looked at it I thought it just wasn't right for him.  I'll save it for another birthday.  Plus it gave me the perfect reason to pull out one of my favorite stamps and get a hopping with Flourishes Blog Hop.  You really need to go check it out.. they have some wonderful prizes.  Just click this badge and check it out.
 
 Then I picked my sketch and colors and this is what I came up with.

Much more appropriate for a Dr.  I used the sketch from City Crafter Challenge #39 and I used the colors from Create With Connie and Mary Challenge #133 

 The stamp is from Hampton Art
The buttons and twine are from Bo Bunny
The Sentiment is from Cloud 9

Have a great and safe weekend and come back tomorrow to see what else I have created.
