Young at Heart........

Ain't we all! It is a friend's birthday next week and he is just that - "young at heart" and so the sentiment from the set of the same name at Little Paper Shop really suited a card for him.  I used the birthday boy's upcoming celebrations and the sketch challenge at Annabelle Stamps (ABSC#27) - plus bling - with the colour theme from a challenge at Colour Throwdown #104 - tangerine tango, daffodil delight, and old olive - to come up with his card. Unfortunately, I was too late for the Colour Throwdown challenge to enter but I liked the colour combo so used it, although I didn't have exactly the same colours.

Sorry about the photo but it was getting late and it was cold outside and I thought it would be OK, but obviously I was probably shaking with cold after being in the nice, warm craft room all afternoon - cleaning up, not crafting! The image is from a Paperartsy stamp set called At Home - Plate 5.  It is stamped with Memonto ink - Rich Cocoa, as is the sentiment.  Plus there is bling! The card is SU Old Olive and So Saffron, with some Pumpkin Pie used to mount the image. The edge punch is from Fiskars. The DP is from SU also. There is an insert with a rub-on sentiments.

Back to the craft table!
