Happy Birthday, Happy New Home

Good morning!  I'm sharing a card that I made for one of our nephews.  He has a birthday coming up...and he recently moved from his parents home, into a rental house.  Wow, they grow up so fast!
Anyway, I wanted to combine the two occasions into one card.
This card is going into the CAS-ual Fridays CFC 54 Challenge.  Here's the challenge details.
Clean and simple masculine cards, using designer paper.

My card ~

I used two patterned papers, both from a retired Stampin' Up! pack called To The Nines.  The sentiment is computer generated in MS Word.  While browsing through my embellishments I found a pack of 7Gypsies keys and thought a tiny key would be the perfect finishing touch.  I'm really pleased with the results.  Our nephew isn't that into cards (but that doesn't stop me from making him one!) but I hope he likes this card.

Thanks for stopping by,

What's in it?
card stock: bashful blue, close to cocoa, very vanilla (SU), white (PTI)
designer series paper: to the nines (SU)
other: key (7Gypsies), townscape die (Tim Holtz/Ellison), chocolate waxy flax (CTMH), white gelly roll pen (Sakura), MS Word generated font for the sentiment
