Invitation for My Dad & His Brother's 75th Birthday Party: Tutorial

I finished the invitations for the upcoming birthday bash in honor of my dad and his twin brother's 75th birthday.  It really is quite challenging to combine creativity with age-appropriateness.  Birthday party invitations usually call for balloons and confetti and fun stuff like that.  However, those things really didn't seem to fit.  This is what I came up with.  It is really easy to make.  Take a look:

I used drywall tape to break up the plain blue background.  I'm telling you, every papercrafter needs to have drywall tape on-hand.

They have lived on opposite sides of the country pretty much all of their lives, so there really aren't many pictures of just the two of them together.  I thought this baby picture was cute, no? 

I love this denim ribbon by Stampin' Up!  I wish I could buy/make denim-looking paper.  (Hmmm...does anyone know how?)

Be sure to cover the brad fasteners with a piece of cardstock to make sure your finished product is nice and clean-looking.
