Irish Twins

My brother and I are the same age for two weeks during the Christmas holidays. I was born in January and he was born in December of the exact same year! Mom always called us her Irish twins. My Dad's Dad was Irish and his wife was French. We have always claimed Irish heritage even though my Mom's side 'threw' in the English. With a name like Duffy we played the Irish ancestry to the limit, as if we were only born to Daddy's side of the fam.
Since I had Waltzingmouse's Celtic Heritage stamp set I made the best of it and made Mike's card. It was made back in early December and he still does not have ownership of it. He and his fam were out of town for his bday, so I still have the card. He did not come to the last family get together cuz he had to work. I'll just give the card to his wife when I see her this week. Better late than never.
All the stamps on this card are Waltzingmouse stamps from either the Celtic Heritage or Irish Blessings sets.
The paper is SU's Soft Suede, Natural Ivory, and Cranberry Crisp. Just about every element is sponged with SSuede. There is a library clip holding the Irish sentiment on the center image. Happy and Birthday are from the same set but there are different fonts and you can mix and match which makes the set awesome.

Thanks for coming by!
