Paper Crafts Milestone Birthday Challenge and CAS(E) this Sketch #11

Hi everyone,
I hope you all had a happy MLKjr. day.  I actually had to work today at my school.  I think it was the only district open in my area. : (   I decided to take the PaperCrafts Milestone Birthday card challenge.

My uncle is turning 80 in a couple of weeks and my cousins are collecting cards to give to him.  What a perfect time to jump in this challenge.  I also decided to use the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch # 11.

And here is my card.  I finally got to use my new Spellbinders Hexagon die.  YAY!  I also used designer paper from Echo Park's collection called "This & That".  The stamps are from the Stampendous clear set called "Twenty Something".  I used Versafine ink in black and distressed my edges with Ranger Distress ink in Old Paper.  I had fun with this sketch.  :D   

Hope you have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Love that the 4 hexagons fit so neatly inside the bigger hex - and what a fantastic milestone - it certainly deserves a special card like this! Thanks so much for playing along with this week's CAS(E) This Sketch!
