One of this month's Creative Crew challenges is to use Timeless Portrait DSP or its colors: Very Vanilla, River Rock, Island Indigo, Cherry Cobbler and Basic Black. I don't have the DSP, but I thought the colors would be perfect for a birthday card for Daniel. He will be 22 tomorrow. Wow, that's hard to believe! Obviously, my card doesn't look anything like the DSP, but I really like it!
I used Extreme Elements and all of the colors to create my own background. I used the new pewter embossing powder from the Holiday Mini for the pirate. I thought about adding some ribbon but decided that I liked it just the way it is!
