Happy Birthday, Nick!

Good morning, Friends! We made it to my parents' house yesterday late afternoon and are having a super time so far!! We will be making our way up to Kansas City for an interment for my sister's mother-in-law. And while we are there we will get to see my brother! Even though he will be here tomorrow it will be fun to see him today, too! And today happens to be Nick's 13th birthday!! Happy birthday, Nick!! I can't believe we have an official teenager! Yikes!!

So today's card is dedicated to Nick. I didn't happen to have any teenager type stamps in my stash. In fact, I really want Stampin' Up! to come up with some more teenager/grunge type stamps! But I used what I had on hand and here is what I came up with. And I paired it all up with some of his favorite colors! I took a piece Basic Black and cut out the shape with the Perfect Pennants die and then ran it through the Big Shot again with the Chevron embossing folder. I adhered it to a piece of Whisper White and added two gold brads. I stamped the greeting from Bring on the Cake in black StazOn and colored it in with Gumball Green, Melon Mambo and Summer Starfruit markers. This piece is then adhered to a piece of Gumball Green and then popped up onto a card base of Whisper White.

I just want to remind everyone that the Control Freaks blog tour will be up and running tomorrow evening. Be sure to stop by then to take the tour and be inspired for Christmas!! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!!
