Faux Leather Birthday Greetings

Happy New Year, Everyone!  I've spent the day spending my Christmas money on new shelving and cabinets in my stamping area and working with my hubby to put all of them together.  I can't wait to get everything moved around! :)   Even after all of that I managed to do the Faux Stamped Leather technique that Melissa B. showed us in a Splitcoast tutorial a couple of weeks ago.  As soon as I saw the technique I knew I would be making a card for my brother's birthday using that technique, and I'm a month early with his b-day card too...amazing! lol  I was also browsing through blog challenges last night that I follow and saw that it's Color Me's... 1st anniversary....congratulations to Tara and Haley and all that have been a part of their design team!!  I've only played along with them one time since I've started following them and decided it was time to play along again.  I checked out all the options I had since we can choose any one of their color combinations over the past year and went with Color Me...subtle which was challeng # 47.  I love these colors together and thought they would go great with the faux stamped leather technique since the colors were pretty close.  Here are a few pics of the card I made...


I'm trying to show a little more detail of what I did using the stylus.  Kind of looks like the card is shimmery in this pic, doesn't?  Well it's not!  Somehow I don't think my rock climbing, hunting, body man of a brother would want a sparkly card. lol

Thanks for looking and Happy New Year!
