Happy Birthday ...

Good morning and Happy New Year! It's the first of the month, and that means it's time for a New Challenge over at the House of CardsThis month's Challenge is a Embossing and/or Color Challenge.

My card features both aspects of the challenge ... Embossing and some of the Colors.

My nephew turns 18 this month, so he was my inspiration for today's card. I pulled out some Hunter Green cardstock, embossed it with my Cuttlebug Cane Back Chair Embossing Folder, and then used one of my Nestabilities Long Classic Rectangular Dies in the center of the panel. After adhering the panel to my Spearmint A2 Panel I stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Brown Ink, and added the cream colored enamel dots. 

Clean and Simple for a young man who is not into fussy cards, and I just love how the sentiment pops!

Make sure you hop on over to the House of Cards Challenge Blog for all of the details for entering our Monthly Challenge. I can't wait to see what inspires you this month!

Until Next time ... Enjoy!
