Birthday Card for my brother Raymond

My brother Raymond's birthday is coming at the beginning of October, but since we don't live very close; I always get his card ready early to be able to post it to him. This year I prepared a special image for him and called it Miguel the Adventurer. I could have called it "Raymond the Adventurer", but I used one of my new characters called Miguel and it is better to stick to that name, KWIM.

Raymond did a pilgrimage this summer called the Compostela Pilgrimage (a.k.a Way of St. James). He bag-packed with his son Philippe in Europe. It was a life changing experience for him and I know he has the desire to travel more and I hope he will. I wish him an awesome birthday and many many opportunities to travel in the new year.

I used a wonderful sketch by Our Creative Corner to make this card. 

I also entered this card in the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps Challenge - Autumn Colours
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
The Crafty Pad - Autumn Colours: Brown, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green (at least 2 colours)

What an incredible card for your brother. I loved reading about his pilgrimage; what an adventure that is!! For that you couldn't have designed a more perfect card. :) You've absolutely done wonders with the sketch and it's entirely fitting for any male.
