Pete's Card

So today one of my brothers has reached the grand old age of 60 and I made a card using the only pic I had of him when he was little. It was taken from an grainly scan I had taken of the original that had my family up to that point. Which is why the photo of my chicken pox brother is awful made worst by then actually photo the card.
But it did get the response that I was after when I gave the card to him yesterday, when we met up for small celebration at his home.
The papers are Kaiser Up Up and Away collection nice and grungy  and I just cut out some balloons for embellishments quite pleased how it turned out. I going to enter the card in the Anything Goes challenge on Papertake Weekly.
I have yet another special card to make this week for my DD who wants a Baby's 1st Birthday card, I've already coloured the image just need to use it.
