It's a simple card, but I love it, and hope the young man (who will be sorely missed) does too. I've used Stampin' Up!'s new silver mini brads on this card, and they are FABULOUS - they're not much bigger than pin heads, and are great, low-profile, embellishments for cards. I can see I'll be using lots of these!
