Forever Young!

 A closer look at my images!
 The inside of my card.
When I was making this card I got to thinking about siblings. I am a middle child so I had both the joy of being the younger sister and the older sister. Wedged between two brothers I often played the roll of peace maker or protector. I watch my grandsons and I see how sometimes the older brother is tired of the younger brother tagging along and sometimes he loves showing him how to do things.  These  older Tilda stamps have been gathering dust for a bit so I grabbed them as they made me think of two siblings off to fish together. I drew in a dusty path with my Copics and added some hand drawn pebbles! I die cut the mushrooms and butterflies. My flowers are from WOC and one handmade rolled rose. I added pearls to the butterflies and Spica pen for a bit of sparkle. The paper was from a little used pad but somehow worked with this "fishing" scene. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Bob Dylan
May God bless and keep you always 
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others 
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars 
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young 
May you stay forever young.
