Tina has come up with a sketch, for our challenge at Just Add Ink this week:

I used the sketch for my brother's birthday card ... and, as I was rather organised in having this card made early for the challenge (even if late for my brother's special day!), I've used a few products that retired from Stampin' Up!'s range at the end of May.   The Farmers' Market Designer Series Paper, white Jute Ribbon, and Circles framelits are now all retired.

The colours on my card are:

Here is the card I made for the younger of my two brothers who celebrate May birthdays:

Don't you just love the new Duet Banner punch?  There's a danger you will be seeing this on most of my cards in the coming year!  I have listed below the current Stampin' Up! products used on this card.  If you'd like to buy them. just click on one of the thumbnail images below, to be taken to my online store.
