Picture challenge for Lexi's

Our challenge at Lexi's Creations this time is to incorporate a photograph on your project. I used her digi sentiment stamp "Happy Birthday". I chose to make a card for my husbands upcoming birthday. He will be 60 next month so wanted to make a card a little more special by adding his baby picture. I found a tutorial on how to make this slider peek-a-boo card and knew it would be perfect for this project. I love how his baby photo is showing thru the window but when you open the card it is a recent picture. My husband is absolutely not into frills and bling so made this card a little plain. His favorite colors are blue and brown so chose those for this project also. I hope he likes this. Please come and join us at Lexi's! Thanks for stopping by and please come back soon!
