Today is my middle brother Don's big day – Happy Birthday, Bro!

As Don lives in Southern California, I thought it would be fun to introduce a little South of the Border flavor along with a few Aztec-style patterns along the left side. 

The background has been textured with Papertrey Ink's Linen impression plate and I hope the camera picks it up:  it's a subtle touch makes the cardstock echo the kind of texture you would find on an adobe building.  And at our ages, Don and I are kinda textured too, so hey – it works!
