Best Wishes

My oldest nephew will be turning TWENTY in March! Gosh...he was just a wee little bugger (three) when Tony and I started dating. Where does the time go?!?! Anyhoo...I needed to make a birthday card for him and found some wonderful inspiration from the most recent Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge and Color Throwdown #280.






Here's my creation:




I altered the sketch a little but hopefully you can still see the main components. Isn't that color combo fantastic?!?! I love it! And if you look closely you'll see I embossed the navy blue card base with a honeycomb embossing folder. Just adds a little something.

What do you think? Hopefully my nephew will like it!

Thanks for stopping by today
