Another Year Older

My little brother's birthday was this past weekend. It's hard to see him getting older, because that means I'm getting older, especially when his birthday is the day before mine.

When I set out to make a card for him, it took me awhile to settle on a design. This is what I finally settled on.

I love the background paper, maybe because I use to work for newspapers. I added a little star clip that I got on clearance at Michael's.

Inside the card, I added a few more details.

Thanks for looking.
