CIE Another Year Older

Hi, everyone! It's another Cards in Envy Monday!

Our theme for the next couple of weeks is Another Year Older. I thought this was a perfect opportunity to make that special birthday card for my nephew who is turning 16 at the end of the month. And, from what I hear, my nephew has a Virginia driver's license at the top of his wish list.  :)

Distress Ink fired brick and chipped sapphire core; Recollections white and silver glitter cardstock
computer-generated original license plate embellishment
Making Memories stash letter stickers
Sizzix/SU embossing folder; SU owl builder punch (for tiny circles)
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zig 2-way pen; Recollections foam squares

Hope my nephew likes his card. And, we hope you'll join us at Cards in Envy for our Another Year Older challenge. Remember the A2 size requirement has been dropped but your entry still needs to be flat enough to be sent in a standard envelope.

Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
