birthday or sympathy?

Good evening! I know--another weird title. I made a card intending for it to be someone's birthday card at work, but to me, it looks a little too serious like a sympathy card. What do you think?

I ended up making another card. I'll post it tomorrow. In the mean time, here are some pictures of the kids. First off is Joey learning to tie his shoes.
Next we have Anthony playing outside, which he loves to do. He's wearing some adorable frog rubber boots that Joey grew out of before he wore them more than a time or two.

It is so funny to me how much Joey is like me and Anthony is like Jason. Sunday afternoon Anthony spent a few hours outside since Jason was working on the flower beds. Joey laid on the couch and read his Nintendo DS game manuals. Since he has learned to read, he reads everything in sight. I thought he knew everything about all things Mario, but he discovered a few things while doing his Sunday reading. Anthony nearly had a fit when it was time to come in and get ready for evening church. I hope yall are having a good week so far. This is my busy week with Heart to Home on Monday night, Pokeno on Tuesday night, and month-end close beginning Wednesday. Be sure and comment whether you think my card is a birthday card or a sympathy card and I'll be back tomorrow with the other card I made.

I'd go with "Sympathy" for this one...unless the person loves roses! Maybe if there was some glitter/sparkle on the flowers it would work for "birthday".

I think it's beautiful. You did a super job on coloring the roses. I would use it for either one. It could even be a thinking of you card.

it's pretty either way!

I think if the person loves roses and vintage type stuff it is a great birthday card! Otherwise ya definate sympathy.
