You're old!

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another What If? Wednesday challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week it is Designer's Choice and that designer is ME!  This is crazy birthday time for our family--my brother-in-law's b-day is the 16th, my husband's the 19th and mine is the 21st--so I chose a Birthday theme.  We can always use birthday cards, right?  Well, this one is for my brother-in-law.  I hope the "potty" humor doesn't offend anyone.  If it does, I apologize.  That being said, my sister convinced me that this would be perfect for her hubby as he has a bit of a strange sense of humor.  (Edited to add: My BIL LOVED this card!  Right away he said he had to take it to work to show a co-worker.  Honestly, I think he was more excited about the card than the gifts that went along with it, which I know he liked!)
 I started with a red base, as that is his favorite color.  And I added some brown sequins for, well, I'm not going to say it.  Let's just say that my three girls thought it was kind of gross.
 The sentiment "oh crap . . . you're old" is kind of fitting because he is turning 30!  And I can say it, because I'm several (and a few more) years older than him.
I hope you'll get a chance to play along with us this week.  You can even make a birthday card for me, if you want!  : )

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions from the Holy Crap series "you're", "OLD!", "oh, crap . . .", "plunger", and "toilet"
Dies: Spellbinders "A2 Matting Basics A" rectangles for the frame

Nice, this is a riot! I don't mind the potty humor as I have a 10 year old and work in an elementary school. Glad your BIL liked it!
