Happy Birthday

Hi there!

It was one of those mornings to which Abu Dhabi woke up , wrapped in a blanket of fog... yes it's that time of the year. Although I LOVE the weather, I just hate it to get in the car for the school run on mornings like this, because it's really dangerous out there. But, I am safe back home, and grabbed a chance to show you a card I made for a couple of challenges.



I made my frame by overlapping 3 squares with rounded corners (cut with Silhouette). The wood grain stamp is from Kaisercraft. Sentiment printed on vellum.


The challenges:

                                                             Less is more ~ sketch


                                                        


                                                             Keep it simple ~ squares


                                           


                                                               Dynamic Duos ~ Colors

                                                          

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

Absolutely and totally retro cool! I'm sure my mom had wallpaper exactly like this waaaaaaay back when! Love the wood grain stamp (and how versatile it can be!)

The flower...ka-thunk gorgeous!

Where you have fog, we have freezing temps & blowing snow! -47C this morning for my trip to work! Yep - BRRRRRR! Would much rather have stayed at home to craft :)

So clever! I really thought these were intertwined til I looked for the 'how', then I read your commentary! So simple and so effective!
