C4C #68 & Stampin' B's #91 Celebrate Challenges

The challenges at Crazy 4 Challenges and Stampin' B's this week were to create and post a Celebrate Card and I have just that card. I used the Brick Wall technique to make this card and while I am very proud of how it turned out, I decided this is one technique that is for Very Special People only to receive... Time consuming but beautiful. I stamped the focal point, then cut out and sponged each "brick" and then put back together. I used only black, grey and white for colors but do love the look. Sorry- not sure of stamp credits...
