Let the Wild Rumpus Start!...

My sweet and handsome brother-in-law, Scott, celebrated a birthday this week and I made him a card that I hoped would remind him of the fabulous vacation he and his fiancee, Marlene, took to St. Thomas a couple weeks ago. He knows how to have a good time, so I thought the sentiment on this darling stamp from Taylored Expressions was more than appropriate!
After stamping and coloring with Copics, I tore around the edges of the image freehand to give it a bit of a "castaway" look. I paired it with some cool patterned paper and a wood sheet to keep up the theme and added a ribbon and some cool eyelets for what I hoped was a fun masculine card for the uncle whom my son has always called "Uncle Soggy." Happy Birthday, Sogster!
