Birthdays are like.....

"Birthdays are like Boogies, the more you have; the harder it is to breathe"

I saw this sentiment a long time ago and I do not know where or who came up with this original...The digi is from
I cut the frames with a nestabilities and ran it through my cuttlebug using the steampunk folder.  I also found some inexpensive folders in A.C. Moore and I ran the front cover in the card through one that gave it a cool texture of stripes.  I colored it using a mix of copics, pro markers and Noir.
  This is the inside.  I added some foiled embellies and an inkadinkadoo stamp.  
My first attempt at an envelope using the Martha Stewart Score board and punch.  I also lined it with a paper that I also ran through the cuttlebug striped folder. 

This is a belated birthday card going to my Brother in Law.  He has four young children.  I am sure they will find it hilarious.
  I will enter the following challenges:
