Happy New Year!!!

Hola Everyone! I hope you all had a safe and wonderful holiday! I am looking forward to this year as it will be filled with lots of happy events; both crafty and personal. One event will be my oldest daughter's wedding in June. I will be posting the crafty side of planning her nuptials. But for now, I want to share a card I made for my future son-in-law's Big 30. His birthday is January 1st!!! Ahhhhh...I know what it is to have a holiday birthday as mine is Christmas Eve. 

For this card I used the brand new MISTI that my daughter gave me for my birthday. I am sooooooo in love with it!!! What a difference it makes when making an image pop! I am glad that it is part of my stamping arsenal. The stamp set is from the AWESOME Vanessa of V's Sweet Ideas

My future son-in-law is a Pittsburgh Steelers fan (we still love him anyway...lol) and I wanted to create a card using the Steelers colors: black and yellow. I started the design with one suit surrounded by yellow suits. Initially, I was going to color the suit in the middle, but changed my mind once I saw the yellow suits around it.  I knew the suit needed a "pop" so I chose to color in the tie only with gold Wink of Stella. I cut the the sentiment separating the "Suit Up" from "It's Your Birthday" and stamped them on the card. 

For the inside of the card, I used black and yellow in addition to the number 30! I will write a note before I send it off! 

Thanks for taking a peek! Have an AWESOME rest of your day!
