Green LEGO Birthday Note Card

Offspring3 needed a small birthday card for a little boy turning 4. I dug through my paper stash, and found a scrap of green LEGO paper that was large enough for a note card. The LEGO paper is textured – the dots are raised, and the brick edges are debossed.

I really need to see if I can find more of this paper! (off to the Google machine I go!)
