Happy Birthday, Nick!

This card is for my nephew.  He is not a "kid" - he just turned 32.  It's hard for me to make cards for guys.  I know many of you share the same problem.  This is what I came up with.

The embossed candles were done with a Cuttlebug folder.  The gold elements were cut out with a Cuttlebug die.  Both are from a set that I got from a friend.  (Thanks so much, Suzie!!)  The blue and gold paper are both from scrap packs that I have purchased in the past.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

This is perfect for a 32-yr old man, Lynette. They are TOUGH. (I get all stressed out over teen/older boy/man cards.) Love the white as always!

Once I got this folder I wasn't sure how to "jazz it up". I really like the way you did yours!
