Birthday Glow!

A man's age is something impressive, it sums up his life: maturity reached slowly and against many obstacles, illnesses cured, griefs and despairs overcome, and unconscious risks taken; maturity formed through so many desires, hopes, regrets, forgotten things, loves. A man's age represents a fine cargo of experiences and memories.
Antoine de Saint-ExupĂ©ry, Wartime Writings 1939-1944, translated from French by Norah Purcell

A shout out to our wonderful retired Reverend, Uncle Russ, who is celebrating 83 years of living, breathing and being human like the rest of us! 

I won this adorable image some time ago and just finally got around to using it. It's called Birthday Candle Birdbrain by From the Heart Stamps.

Uncle Russ has such a great sense of humor, I thought he would enjoy the whimsy!

I printed him on card stock from Georgia Pacific and colored him with my Prisma Color Pencils.
Still working on my shading but I think I'm getting better.

The card size is 5 x 7
