happy happy happy!

Hi there!

We just heard that our daughter missed her connection flight at Gatwick airport, because her earlier flight was delayed... so what better to do to kill the time than getting busy making a card!

I used the ever so inspiring sketch from Case this sketch!

I will also join the fun at Seize the birthday's birthday bash and Keep it simple's Birthday challenge!






I created the required panel by typing happy in different fonts, and rotating them in different directions.

Added the 'Birthday' after printing it on a piece of vellum. Black brads to add some interest and also to fix the vellum to the card stock without visible glue or tape marks.

   
                                                            

I appreciate your visit... hope to see you back soon!
Hugs

I think we'll be passing your daughter in the sky. We had to spend the night in New York after a delayed flight. Not sure where our luggage is.

Love your card. The mix match of fonts is perfect.
