A Birthday & a Challenge

August's challenge with the Pieces of Heart stamping group was to create something using the 2012-2013 in colors. I knew that my little grandsons 7th birthday was coming up and would need a card for him so I would combine the two. David loves Legos so I decided to use all 5 in colors to create this Lego card for him. The inspiration came from Heidi Boos found on the Stampin' Connection.  I simply changed the color combination.

Call me an Indian-giver.  I made the card, gave it to him on his birthday, then took it back so that I could take it to the monthly dinner with my peeps.
