brother

This may be one of my favorite cards ever!  You know when all the papers and elements just fall together.  I don't usually have "fun" patterned papers, but I won a couple Basic Gray packs and LOVE the patterns.  I used the Mojo Monday #240 sketch, the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge to use something natural on your card (I used twine) and the Frosted Designs challenge to use lacing on your project (I pierced holes and laced twine through them on the main sentiment panel).  I was acutally making this card for someone else, but I loved it so much I knew I had to make it for my brother (even though his birthday isn't until July).  The "happy" and "birthday" are both from SU!'s "Flexible Phrases) and the "Brother" is from Verve "World's Greatest".
