Minimal Birthday

I have seen this layout all over blogland lately! I think it was a Splitcoast challenge, but I don't generally hang out over there, so I didn't see it for myself. I do, however, love the way this card came out!!



This card does, of course, works itself into three challenges:

  • Creative Card Crew asked for MINIMAL. I am thinking this is about as minimal as it's gonna get! LOL
  • Flourishes Timeless Tuesday asked for a birthday card. The sentiment is CTMH.
  • Colour Create asked for Sky Blue, Ecru & Tan - the ecru butterflies are actually Tim Holtz paper that looks like old bookkeeping records. I got it in a grab bag at a local stamp store.

I will probably be doing this layout again. It is obviously quick and easy! This was literally a 10 minute card!

Hope to see you back here soon....

Hi again Vickilyn,

So I came up with an idea today!! I wanted to ask you if you would play along with a challenge I posted on my blog?

I am kind of nervous for adding a challenge, but I thought it would be a fun way to collaborate with other stampers?

Please let me know what you think of this idea?

Here is the link, please have a look when you have a moment.
