Live Life

Hello! Today I'm sharing a card I made for our nephew's 18th birthday. This fabulous sketch from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #120 was just what I needed to get the creative mojo going:

And here's my take:

Our nephew, Zachary, is heading to the Naval Academy after graduation. It's his dream to fly, and we feel certain his future will be full of adventure. I won a bunch of "travel-themed" supplies from my crafty friend, Glenda, awhile back, and they were a perfect fit for the customized card I wanted to create. I hope he likes it!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
