Birthday Card For My Brother

Hello Friends & Welcome Visitors,

I always love it when my brother Marty's birthday comes along because my birthday is only five days later!  My brother is the musical one in the family.  I saw this Juke Box card and had to make it for him.  We were both born in the late 1950's.

Do you see the little record in the middle?  When I found my Francie doll case there was a record player with some records in there.  The record I chose was "The Monkeys" because we used to watch that show on TV after school.  I thought Marty would get a kick out of that.

Recipe for this card
SVGCuts - Rockin' & Rollin' Kit
Bazzill Paper
Well Played Paper- By Carta Bella
Silver Stickels
Quick Quotes Chalk - Maraschino Cherry
Recycled record from doll toys

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Quick Quotes - Bling It On
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper -  Use Patterned Paper
Moving Along With The Times - Shaped Card

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I appreciate all of your comments!  Happy Birthday Marty!  I hope you have a wonderful day!
