Have A Fantastic Birthday

It's Monday and I'm counting down to our summer hols away. In a couple of weeks we should be at our dream destination BUT before we leave there are a gazillion things to do. Mainly chores, with a few DT cards and posts to schedule. I'm not really complaining about the latter as I'd rather be crafting than doing the laundry!

Anywho, here's a birthday card for a friend. I'll be popping this in the mail before we leave.

I decided on the square version of the sketch. The papers are from First Edition's "New Leaf" 8x8 pad. For cutting and layering I used Spellbinders Circles and Eyelet Circle dies.

The greeting is from Clearly Besotted's "It's Your Birthday" set, stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. I used the coordinating die to cut out the party hat. To finish, some coffee coloured sheer ribbon. 

That balloon is also from the same stamp set. 

Challenges for this card:
Mojo Monday #304 - sketch
Amusing Challenges #9 "Anything Goes"
Eureka Stamps #50 "Anything Goes"
Seize The Birthday "Anything Goes Birthday Celebration"
Moxie Fab World."Birthday Creations Week:Birthday Card"
Make It Monday #151 "Anything Goes"
Craftin' Desert Divas "Birthday Linky Party"
Paper Playtime #15 "Patterned Paper"

So that's my card for today. I have to get back to my chores...urgh!
Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon my friends.

  12. You don't mention if your friend is a man or a woman, but it really doesn't matter with this design. You're so great at making "unisex cards" - I love cards that are versatile - they really come in handy sometimes and prevents the last minute stress of making a card in a hurry (oh yes, I've got plenty of experience with that - lol).
