Fancy Dresser

Hallo again!
A quickie for you:
This card was for my nephew, Nicholas.  Now Nick is a very interesting young man.  Super intelligent, the sort that you wonder what he is thinking, but he is also a, well, how do I put it, ummm, quite a "different dresser" than most.  But funny, he makes it work!  When I received this steampunk freebie from Colleen at Making Our Mark, Nick came to mind.  So, here you go, Nick's 28th birthday card:

Nick spent many years in France for being so young.  First, going with his High School for 4 semesters, then later, after getting his credentials, teaching in Paris  That is why the Paris post card background.  The background came as a gift from a friend.  Other than that, everything is from Making Our Mark, colored with Prisma pencils and placed on birthday DP.

Speaking of gifts, I want to thank my 3 Amigos for sending me such fun and often necessary card making supplies!  The other day as I was fnishing up a card I thought to myself, "Self, if not for this embellishment, you wouldn't have a card!"  Just a thought.  Thank you again, my friends, for sending me such great things to use when card making.  And most of all, thank you for being my friends.

Bye for now!  See you in the morning with my very first DT card for One Stitch At A Time (OSAAT)!
