Happy Birthday

Secret Crafter had a great challenge this week - #136 Clean and Simple. I like this style of cardmaking and most of the time I manage the clean but not quite the simple and tend to make things a little complicated for myself! But alas I did manage to do this card in 30mins and off the 30mins - 10mins was devoted to looking for the 'bracket and striped paper' piece as I put it down and then couldn't find it - here I was cursing and talking to myself trying to find where I had put it - I lifted up absolutely everything - the cutting mat, all the scrap paper, stamp packs, ink pads, boxes, anything and everything that I thought it would be under ... is this sounding familiar? ... guess where it was? ... under my pair of scissors - it was small enough to hide under the handle part and of course that was one thing I didn't move thinking it wouldn't be under there!


I have used a combo of scrap Basic Grey and Daisy Bucket papers, the stamps are from Annabelle Stamps and Verve.

Thanks for looking.
