Surprise ending

This very kewl SimonSaysStamp sketch was on my desk and I wanted a card for my oldest brother.  SIXTY SIX this year. Let’s talk retirement!  I was thinking patriotic, flags, etc.  but once I made the sun, it just kind of flowed in a different direction.  The piece of darker green is actually a pic of the Smokey Mountains.  a tiny piece left of the DP I picked up there years ago.  (my brother lives in TN and went to the Smokies for their honeymoon.) 

It took all of 22 minutes to make this card.  Now I am bummed b/c when I photo it it is not TRUE color.  This is a bluish green stampin up color, one of there ones they come out with for a short time and then retire it.  It just looks so cool all done up in for real life!  The color changes to too blue when photographed.  But hey, I like it, he’ll like it and we’ll all be happy and I got to use that very kewl sketch from SimonSaysStamp. hmmm after posting it the color don’t look so bad after all!   (yes, I know I said “don’t) but the red isn’t this red.  ha ha.
