Happy Birthday, Bro!

Morning everyone! This is post 1 of 2 today, so be sure to check the other one out if you haven't already. I'm sneaking this in prior to posting the cards made for the kidlets fundraising gift baskets, but wanted to post, and enter this card in the Practical Scrappers challenge, which is to use glitter and flocking. (Thanks to Deanne, a fellow SPCC Diva for introducing me to this site! Soooo fun!) Anywho...I can do glitter with the best of them (although it does seem to be missing from my repertoire lately, funny how we get into creative routines isn't it?), but flocking is totally new to me. I think I'm gonna like it!!! How cutie is this little fuzzy coconut???

ETA: This card was also entered in the Frosted Designs challenge which was to use glitter...that little 'brellie is glitered ovah'da'top! So FUN finding new challenges!!!

And as for the title of the post...my baby bro turns 38 today (which means, I'm, uh, OLDER!) so thought he could use a fun little drink to help him celebrate his day. I'm sure he won't mind the pink 'brellie and straw, but I could have totally gone blue, and this would be a great "man's card". Well. If that man enjoyed girlie drinks I suppose. Hehe. A quick story on my little bro...he is over 6 feet tall, and has been since high school. (I'm 5'8", and though that can be considered tall for a girl, I am a midget compared to the boys in my family) Growing up I delighted in telling people about my "little" brother, only to enjoy their expressions when he sauntered over and they realized the "little" brother they had imagined, was one tall man! Anyway, Happy Birthday Bro, hope you have a great one!

Ingredients: (all SU! unless otherwise mentioned)
Old Olive CS and 5/8" Satin Ribbon, Soft Suede CS and Classic Ink, Melon Mambo Stampin' Write, Tropical Party Stamp Set, Well Scripted Stamp Set, Island Oasis DSP, flocking and glitter from my local craft store.
