Morning everyone and thanks so much for all your lovely messages on my last post. I'm trying to get some cards made (instead of leaving things until last minute) but everything seems to be going wrong and there have been a few ending up in the bin. My card today has survived although I did forget to add the 'stick it' sheet to the card before die-cutting so had to use 'stix 2' micro dots and ended up putting it on the wrong side of half the letters and had to cut more. It's a good job I've got a mountain of snippets!
I needed a birthday card is for my Dad to give my son who will be 41 so as usual when I need some ideas for male cards I headed over to my blogging friend Pauline at Crafting With Cotnob and this is her card which inspired me. I also went for a colour combo to fit in with a few challenges and made it entirely from snippets of card and papers. The sentiment and letters are Memory Box dies and the stars are an Xcut die.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
Pixie's Snippets Playground 200th challenge 'use snippets' off for my second play
Allsorts challenge 'orange / purple / black all or any two'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'take your pick' I've gone for the colour theme
Fussy and Fancy Friday challenge 'colour choice - orange, purple, black'
