Congratulation Card with a "Wow" factor

Hi, Stampers!

I recently found out that my neighbor found a fantastic new job.  I wanted to tell him how excited I was for him.  Guess what I did?  Made a card of course!  The card I made also works for two challenges this week.  I gotta big bang out of one card.  Here's the card I made:

Jennifer Brum came up with a very versatile sketch for Freshly Made Sketches 230

Bruno Bertucci came up with an awesome color combo for the Global Design Project #029 Challenge.  I would never have thought to use these colors together, but they are splendid!

My card base is Bermuda Bay.  I made Early Espresso my neutral and sentiment color.  
Early Espresso is my new black for a lot of my cards.  Tangelo Twist is my accent color.  A little dab will do ya!  My background was made by using my Tangelo Twist and Bermuda Bay markers with a marker spritzer.  I finished it off with three Bermuda Bay Candy Dots.

I think my neighbor will smile when he opens this fun card!  What do you think?  Add a comment below, I would love to hear from you!

Happy stamping!
