Stylish Birthday

 I'm going to be trying out a few new things in the coming weeks. I've joined some groups: Gingersnap Creations Group, Technique Junkies Group, Crafters Digital Art Center, and a group on Paper Craft Planet. Just trying out some new things for me, but will get back to some of my regular challenges after the first of the year. There are quite a few of them who are taking some time off for the holidays to spend time with friends and family and to recharge their creative batteries. Something we all need to do from time to time.
A little clapping before I move on to this card. I received an Honorable Mention over at The Shabby Tearoom for my Santa Heart card. Debbie and her team are a very talented group, and I appreciate the recognition they have given me since I have been entering their challenges.
 This card is for the GC80: Color Challenge-Vintage Hues
at Gingersnap Creations. They've been focusing on Fashion and Stitching this month. This card will be doing double duty. My youngest son was a model and extra in some movies when he was in his middle  teens and his birthday is coming up in a couple of weeks. As I photographed this card it reminded me of him because he is a very stylish fellow.

Supplies: Ivory Card Blank 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" The Paper Company, Papers: Graphic 45-Dressed to the Nines, Stampin Up-Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, tan unknown, Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps-Designer Label Celebrations, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Sepia, Cobalt, Jet Black, Clear Dollar Stamps-Designer Label Die, Stampin Up-Bigz Top Note die, Fiskars-decorative corner punch, tiny brads-The Paper Studio, Stampin Up-Antique Brads, Stampin Up-dimensionals.
