Happy Birthday

This week I have made a birthday card for one of my nieces.

  I wanted a gold and white card with a tiny pop of colour, then found I onky had scraps of gold card so I cut and then coloured the outer layer of the white diecut frame with a gold leaf pen ( they are so useful!) et voila one gold frame. I water coloured a bit of watercolour card for the coloured birds and and used the scraps to cut the other birds. The sentiments are simply stamped and gold embossed.

Washi and die cut....

card today. I covered a piece of scrap card in wash tapes that were differing widths and designs but coordinated colours...I then die cut a simple butterfly to show off the colours and designs and cut a coordinating heart shape in turquoise to pick up the lovely shades of turquoise in the washi tapes, ( having just got back from Cuba I still have the bright colours of the classic old cars and buildings and turquoise sea in mind!!)

To pull the card together  I decided to cut off a half inch strip on the front ( as I love to see and make off the edge cards) and I covered the piece that showed behind the heart in a 1/2" strip of one of the washi's. Simple but effective, I hope you'll agree....and a card that will cover numerous occasions....

I am entering this card in the following challenges

Less is More Washi tape,  and AAA  die cuts
