I made this card for one of our nephews. His birthday is in June, but this time of year is so busy that I wanted to make it ahead of time. Cards for guys can be so difficult for me, since I love to embellish. You know...gems, pearls, ribbons...bling! lol
I wanted to participate in the Color Throwdown Challenge #142, so I used their colors for this card. I think the colors worked well for a "guy" card. I hope our nephew likes the card.
Take a look at the inspiration colors ~
And, my card ~
I brushed my very vanilla stamp pad across the gray embossed panel, to give it a little more definition. I'm pleased with the effect. Oh yea...I pulled out one of my new stamp sets from Paper Smooches! So cute. Seriously cute. You might want to check out this new stamp company. Kim Hughes is the designer/owner.

Thanks for stopping in...I hope you'll leave a comment!
