21st card for Owen

It is again very cold tonight after an overcast day. I picked Fran up this morning and we had coffee with Shirley and Doug and my two youngest grandchildren.
Fran's Mum is still hanging on, but having morphine injections. I dropped Fran home after our quick coffee and she went down to be with her Mum. I rang her later in the day and she said her Mum was aware that she was there at one stage but had drifted back off again.
The rest of my day was taken up with looking after Layla and Isaac. Our son, Laurie, came home just as I was about to give Isaac his tea and decided he was going to feed him!!! It was interesting to watch, LOL.
Jason (their Dad) came here after work as he and Laurie were going off on some car thing together, Papa rocked up too and then Lisel came to get the kids, so it was a full house for about an hour.
We are going off to Owen's birthday barbeque tomorrow and it takes at least 1 1/2 hours to get there so not quite sure what time we are leaving in the morning, but I had better get off to bed because as usual it is late.

Here's my card for today and it is for Owen's birthday.

 Front of card - I've used a coloured piece of paper behind the card to define the edges of the cream cardbase.

Inside of card - Still have the coloured paper behind the cream cardbase!!!

I made a little pocket to hold a piece that can be used for writing a greeting on and also to slip some money into for the birthday boy. The little star is there so you can pull the card out.

Cream Textured bi-fold card from stash ( these cards have been in my stash for about 10 years!!!)
Brown cardstock from stash
DP from Hot Off the Press - Paper Pizazz Sheets ~ Mixing Textured Papers.  ( These also have been in the stash a very long time)
Image is from a freebie set of stamps - I think this is one of the better sets I have that came with a magazine.
The two sentiments are from 2 sets of SU stamps, - Oval one is from Perfect Punches and the celebrate is from Outlined Occasions. The star was handcut and the number 21 was cut with an alphabet die.
Nestie Classic Circle Dies - small and large
Wide Oval Punch

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Polka Doodles - Challenge 32 - Celebrations
Poodles Parlour - Let's see those Die Cuts
