Key to Success

Happy 2012 everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful New Years.  I thought with the start of a new year, I should show a "New Beginnings" card.  I have friends that are moving so I'm making them a set of Change of Address cards.  All of them are slightly different.  The key is chipboard which I've covered several times in silver embossing powder.  That was lots of fun!  The background was done using some Costco DP with a new Sizzlix embossing folder to represent the new address numbers.  The stamp is from SU's retired Right at Home Set.  My friend was floored to find out I had a moving stamp but not a birthday cake, or candles.

Challenges this Card Meets:
Crafty JC - Something New
Everybody Art - Anything Goes
Paper Sundaes - Something Old, Something New (old - key, punch, DP, brad, stamp / new - embossing folder)
The Secret Crafter - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays - Anything Goes
Simon Says - Anything Goes
