Route 66 Birthday Wishes

Hello and hope you are having a wonderful week.  As for me, I just caught a cold and it's moving in quick!  Colds usually get me put on my nebulizer and prednisone.  Neither of them are really good for you in the long run, but they manage to keep me alive while my body inefficiently fights off a common cold.  But, hey, I'm not really complaining, just sharing my life as an asthmatic.

But for now.....

Here's a card made for my big brother's birthday - in September.  With my "use my Cricut more" personal challenge, I came upon this Cricut Nifty Fifties cut when doing my Flamingo from the start of the year and thought it would be perfect for him.  We grew up along Route 66 and just thought it would remind him of home.
I made sure to keep it sequin free, but I did have to add glaze so it wouldn't look so boring.  The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin kit.  I think it came out pretty good, considering guy cards aren't really my thing.  So that's it from me today.  Thank you for taking a look.

This meets the following challenges:  Through the Craft Room Door: Anything Goes, Crafting From the Heart: Anything Goes, Use Your Stuff: Numbers, and 2 Sisters on the Blog: Use Numbers on Your Card.
