My Brother's 21st

Hi everyone.I totally forgot to update here. I've been quite caught up doing things I completely lost track of time!

Last Sunday was my brother's 21st birthday. It went rather well, though not quite your average celebration, once you minus the fact that I was freezing out at the beach waiting for his crew to turn up for about 1.5hrs!

Anyway, I thought I'd share the card I made him.

I'm terrible when it comes to masculine cards, but I had this lightbulb moment last Thursday to use the Mustaches stamp set from My Cute Stamps.

I kept it very simple at the front, because it was close to 11pm and I just wanted to get it done knowing the 'inside' wasn't going to be so easy.

So you open up to this delightful meme that have been taken up like a storm online recently. So "21 like a sir" it is. We don't say "like a sir" here so much. We more often say "like a boss" but it had to be a "sir" with that moustache.

And it was Steph's idea that I add in that monocle ;) I made it, yet again, out of PTI stamp packaging, with very fine ring on the rim (heat embossed gold!). It was more of a mission to somehow foam tape this. There is the tiniest sliver of foam tape on the top right corner, and some double sided tape (more obvious in photo) over the moustache.

Anyway, that's it from me today. 

I don't know what's happening but I can't see any images on my blog atm D: And my profile pic's gone too D:

I'll see if this post comes out ok... I really don't want to re uplaod all those photos from the 100th post lol
