Happy Birthday Jonathan!

This is a card I made for my brother Jonathan. We are going out to eat for his birthday tonight. I used the new June Bug paper from Basic Grey. I love the exotic patterns and color combinations in this pack. The button is also Basic Grey (Porcelain line). It's been raining here all day so my outside picture looks yucky. 
This is an inside view of my card. It holds two gift cards, but I made a tag with a birthday wish for him. I will add a coffee house card to the other side (picking it up on the way to dinner, LOL!) Sorry for the inconsistent posts lately. I have not had enough energy to keep up with my busy life. It was really too much to have the flu and surgery all together! I am regaining my strength each day so please be patient with me (: Thank you all for your kind wishes.

P.S. If you see this Michelle I have not
forgotten that I promised to send you 
one of these cards (: I will!!!!! 
Let me know what you think!!!!
