Our youngest nephew is turning 18 this March. Where or where did all the time go? I remember going to the hospital to see him hours after he was born. When I saw the sketch over at Freshly Made this morning I knew it would be perfect for a guy card. Here's what I created:

My goal for 2016 is to use up some supplies that I have been collecting. For this card I used some new and old stuff. 
New: embossing folders from Tim Holtz
Old: snippets of lagoon, grey and shiny silver paper. Two dies that haven't been used, gems, metal roman numeral 18 and black wink of stella on the "cheers"

Just for fun here's a close up.

I would love to enter this card into this weeks Pixie Playground #210 and Freshly Made Sketches.
