My nephew is Turning 21!!!



Good morning friends!!! I dont think my 21 yr old newphew reads my blog, so Im pretty sure I can post his card here without him seeing it. I made this card over the weekend for his 21st birthday. I can not believe he is that old already. When he was born, he was just over 2 lbs and now he is close to 6' tall. Happy Birthday Kyle!!!

I made this card with 2 challenges in mind. I used the OCCC's color challenge that they have this week. That challenge can be found here:

Then I also used the sketch challenge found over on Mojo Monday which can be found here:

I very much enjoyed this sketch and will have to remember it when I am stuck and needing an awesome sketch.

For this card, all my products are from Stampin Up!!! I used last years In-Colors Blue Bayou and Soft Sky. I used last years Spring Break Designer Series paper, which I think suits Kyle well. The stamps I used are So Cool, which will be retiring on January 19th, and Typeset Numbers and Birthday Greetings. Those awesome star brads are in this catalog and I just got them in my hands a week ago, I just love those things.

Make it a great day and thanks for visiting my blog!!!
