Lookin' Good

Hello! Today is the start of the 2nd week of Summer Card Camp 2. I followed the color scheme for this week and used one of the sketches as a starting point. I picked up the Hey Boy and Hey Girl 6x6 pads by Basic Grey at Joann yesterday... the Hey Boy collection was perfect for our color combo this week! Yay! Anyhoo, I used the numbers from the new Stitched 4x6 Journal Die to die cut my "40" for my shaker window. I glued the die cut panel over my acetate, and then glued the acetate piece under the front panel. 
I filled the shaker window with sequins from Neat And Tangled. That cool little button that says "lookin' good" is also from the Hey Boy collection by Basic Grey.
I really like how this turned out. {which is good because it took me all day, HA} It's for my brother who will be hitting the big 40 soon. :)
