A Special Birthday

This card was made for my older son's birthday later this week.  I certainly hope he stays true to form and doesn't check out my blog until he at least gets the card.  I worked with two challenges again today:  Color Round Up Color Challenge #8 and Create with Connie & Mary 123.

These colors are great for a Fall birthday.  I used More Mustard card stock for the base.  I layered a piece of Autumn Spice Designer Series Paper on Cajun Craze card stock and adhered to the left side of the card front.  A strip of the dsp was layered on another piece of Cajun Craze and attached to the card.  The two leaves were cut out of Autumn Spice dsp using the Leaves #2 die, the edges curled up, and attached to replace the image on the sketch.  The sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was stamped in Early Espresso on Old Olive card stock, attached to a piece of Cajun Craze card stock punched out with the 1-1/4" Circle Large Punch, and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  The finishing touch was adding Cajun Craze, Old Olive, and Early Espresso brads.  The only thing left is to put it in the mail.  We are truly blessed to have two wonderful adult sons and I am always amazed at how quickly the time has gone by.
