Time Goes By So Fast

My nephew, Nicholas, was only 6 years old when I moved from his home town  in upstate New York to Maryland.  Now he's graduating from high school.   This is a birthday card for his May birthday.

Needless to say I feel like I missed out on his growing up by moving out of state.  I don't have children of my own and was very close to my nieces and nephews.

To make his card, I started off with a piece of white cardstock and blended in a variety of inks.  Then I embossed the paper with the Darice Clocks embossing folder.  On the inside of the card it says "Happy Birthday".

Products used:  Darice Clocks embossing folder, Hero Arts Mint Julep Shadow Ink, Cosmic Shimmer Frosty Jade Blending Ink, Salty Ocean distress ink, card base from Michaels, Brother Label Maker 

Thanks for stopping by ~ Ann
