Creative Card Crew...Inspired by a Song

Good morning!  It's time for another challenge from the Creative Card Crew; this fortnight our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp and we would like your card to be inspired by a song.  I'll bet you are thinking that my song is "Happy Birthday"...right?!  Nope!  Actually, the inspiration for my card came from Adele...I love the "21" disc and listen to it a lot....  I thought I would make a 21st birthday card, but when I got out the number dies I realized that they could be used for 12 too.  Since my son will be turning 12 in a few days, I switched gears and went with a "little man" card.

I used some fun birthday paper from my stash and pulled the green to use for my card base.  I simply matted the DP, diecut some numbers, embossed the background diecut and added some brads.  My daughter told me it was a "little plain", but I'm thinking it's just about right for a 12 year-old boy....  We shall see!  LOL

Paper: PTI New Leaf and Dark Chocolate, Doodlebug DP
Embellies: Spare Parts Brads
Extras: PTI Dies, Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" Embossing Folder

I hope you will stop on over at the Creative Card Crew blog to see what the rest of the girls have made to inspire you.  If you play along, you'll have the chance to win a prize from Simon Says Stamp!

Thanks for stopping by!
