OMG!!!!!! This card is so perfect and I should totally make this for my brother in-law. He feels the same way your BIL does and I tell him it's a blessing and to embrace it.. the funny thing is I'm a year older than him. lol....

What a wonderful collection of free stamps - and I love what you have done with them. I do not think it would have occurred to me to heat emboss them, your card looks fabulous, especially with your blended colours.
