Mirror - Mirror on the wall

Here is a card I made for my brother-in-law whose birthday was January 6th.  He is a very funny person and we joke around a lot.  Later in the post I will explain the "joke".   I wanted to make the front of the card very serious looking so we would be thrown off track.
The frame was cut from Elegant edges and I backed it with silver mirror paper.   The saying was computer generated.  So hard to take a picture of that mirror with my camera showing up in it.  LOL
Then when you open it this is what you see................................
Well now to tell a bit of the story.  One time while we were in Las Vegas, my BIL did a bit too much partying one night and when he got up in the middle of the night to go the bathroom he said he looked in the mirror and there was "an ugly man" in there.   Even though he just turned 71 he still has a lot of hair, (some grays ones so I colored them in) so it was quite a mess when he looked in the mirror.  The image I colored using my Copics, it is an image from Digis with Attitude and thought it fit the theme of this card perfectly, with him proudly holding up his brew.
I even added a piece of rope for his belt.
The grill I cut from glossy black paper and silver for the grate using the From my Kitchen cartridge.  The steak was also cut using From my Kitchen and covered with Glossy Accents.
I printed the grass paper using my Imagine and the Snapshot Nature cartridge, then cut it out using the grass cut from Plantin Schoolbook.
I added cloud paper to the background.  The happy birthday is cut from glitter black paper using MS Birthday Cake Art cartridge.

I want to say thanks for stopping by and I would love to hear what you have to say about this card.  It was so much fun to make and we all got a big laugh out of it.
