One Stop Craft Challenge "Happy Birthday"

Good morning everyone.

This week's challenge at One Stop Craft is to create a Birthday card or project.

It is a friend's birthday next week so this challenge was ideal to get me making her card.

Here's what I used to make this card:-

Cardstock: SU "So Saffron"
Designer Paper: SU "Tea Party"
Sentiment Stamp: Elzybells "Everyday Greetings"
Ink: SU "So Saffron"
Punches: SU Scallop Oval and Large Oval, Martha Stewart Zig Zag emboss border punch, Woodware corner punch
Other: Cuttlebug Vintage corner die (I don't think this looks too good with the striped paper, but it is a lesson learnt!).

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog today.

Hugs, Clare xx

I love the simplicity of that! 'Yellow' is a colour I always seem to struggle with. I think you've nailed it though. Well done.
