This is a birthday card for my baby brother Gordy, who's not such a baby anymore. Father Time has done his thing and we three sibs are Seniors now. So I used an aged them for his card this year . . .
From my ephemera stash, I dug out the "Found Relative" baby picture on the little tag. It is actually such a close resemblance to Gordy's real baby pictures that I couldn't resist adding this to his card.
With the die cut bird soaring over the word "Time", the idea was to make the viewer think, "Time Flies" . . . did you get it? Or did I try too hard?
