Special Young Man

I am popping in with a quick 'man card' to show you today - something more on the CAS side - well for me anyway! LOL!

I have used the retired Layers of Color Sweet Silhouette clear art stamp set - it makes it so easy to great a card toegther - I am loving the silhouette images

especially when they come with this gorgeous frame that coordinates with the Spellbinders Labels Ten Nestibilities - it just gets easier and easier!

The sentiment is also from the Sweet Silhouettes clear art stamp set and has been cut with the Spellbinders Grommet Tags Shapeabilities - this is a favourite of mine for sentiments.

The DP is from My Mind's Eye™ Lost and Found Series

The button is from my 'special stash' it came from my Great Grandmothers Button Tin - this card is for my son who turned seventeen in December, I keep these special buttons for projects made for the family.

This card is created for the following challenges:
