Happy Unbirthday!

I totally forgot to put my brother-in-law's birthday card in the mail, and since his birthday was last Saturday I figured I'd make him an "Unbirthday" card and cut my losses!

I kept it very simple. The background is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder, and used some of the same paper for the sentiment strip. I embossed a dotted border on the strip by hand with my embossing tool. The base is a light blue paper.

The sentiment is a stamp from Rogue Redhead Designs, and I heat-embossed it in neon orange. The little bubbles are stickers from Stickopotamus.

The banners are cut from three colors of blue rubber tourniquets. My BIL works in medicine, so I think he'll get a kick out of that!
