Happy Birthday, Noah!

Edited to add: My card was selected as "A Cut Above" for the Paper Players Sketch #44. Thanks, Jen and Paper Players!





Today is my son's 11th birthday! It's hard to believe 11 years ago today Greg and I were awaiting our first baby's arrival. At this very moment, I am reminiscing that special day, while Noah is getting fitted for his very own hunting bow with his dad...Happy birthday, buddy! We will celebrate as a family tomorrow evening with dinner and a movie...Buffalo Wild Wings and RIO!



I was inspired by the Paper Player's Sketch #44, the Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It Challenge 320, BOY, oh boy!...and....



the My Time Made Easy Color Challenge 06 using White, Blue, Coral & Navy.



I used a new set in the Occasions Mini called Plane & Simple...I love this masculine set...perfect for the boys in my life:) Thanks for stopping by!



Stamps: Plane & Simple
Paper: Peach Parfait, Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Night of Navy
Other: Pinking Hearts, Cog & Designer Label punches, Cutter Kit, Jumbo Button, Linen Thread

What an awesome card! You seem to be the master at distressing paper because every time I see a card where you've used that technique I find myself studying it to figure out how you've done it so PERFECTLY!
