Stubby's 50th Birthday

My oldest brother turns the BIG 5-0 next week and this is the card I made for him.  This gem is Gus from Bugaboo Stamps and is called Gus Birthday - Over The Hill.  I imported him into Silhouette Studio so I could wrap the sentiment around him.  I then printed him out, colored with copics, cut out with SB large circle die, and matted with SB large scalloped die.  I used glossy accents on his glasses, black soot distress ink by Tim Holtz, and the 50 is from The Paper Studio.  DP are from The Paper Studio Black and White pad and blue cs is from The Paper Studio brights textured pad.  The layout is for Stella Says Sketch #410.
