Celebration!

A special card today ---

My youngest, Ben, is 20 today!  Hard to believe 20 years has flown by!  We are taking him shopping and to his favorite restaurant tonight in Chapel Hill --- Top Of The Hill.  It's been a birthday tradition now since his freshman year at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  I suspect it will stay that way long after he graduates next year too!

And, looks like I "seized the day" in more ways than one today too!  Not only making Ben a very special card, but playing it in both Seize the Sketch and Seize the Birthday challenges!  LOL




SPIES:
STAMPS: Sentiments - HB (Inkadinkadoo); Celebrate (Lil'Inkers); make a wish (Fiskars); Partytime!(Inkadinkadoo).
PAPER: white cardbase.  DP - All About A Boy (Echo Park).
INK: Tangelo, Bamboo Leaves, Nautical Blue (Momento).
EXTRAS: Notebook border punch (Ek Success); Party element dies- balloons, stars, streamers, gifts, gift ribbon, balloon strings (Taylored Expressions); small dot emboss folder (Cuttlebug).

Birthday Blessings 
to My Ben!
