Live In The Moment


Today I'm playing along with Festive Friday Challenge 105 - World Party Day! I chose celebratory sentiment, sparkle (gold embossing), layers and bright colors from the inspiration list :)

Here's my card:

Our nephew who's a US Marine Corps pilot in San Diego has a birthday coming up at the end of this month, so this card will be heading his way :) The aviator sunglasses with the reflected beach scene are a perfect fit and I added the embossed bricks with splatters in the background to give it an urban touch as well (because let's face it...San Diego is an insanely busy and popular city on the west coast...if you know, you know *wink*).

Hope you're having a brilliant week!

Thanks so much for visiting!!!

  1. Looks like the perfect bday card for your nephew, he'll love it!

  2. This card is awesome. I love that teeny scene reflected in the glasses. A great card for him! We all need to live in the moment. We miss so much when we don't.

  3. I love how the sunny beach scene is reflected in those aviators - I'm having a real Tom Cruise Top Gun flashback!! A great way to add colour to a guy card too. Thanks for playing with us over at Festive Friday!
