I am in the middle of creating a couple of cards for my cousin, but as usual got a bit side tracked. Sometimes it is good to be do this, or so I tell myself, as it refreshes your mind.
I went in search of a challenge & thought I would have a go at the one over at A La Carte Monkey, one which I’ve never done before. Anyhow, this week it is all about Birthdays. We can never have enough Birthday Cards in our stash!

Envelope & Inside…
Using Staz-On Ink, I stamped my image 3 times onto the piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I wanted to fill the white space while at the same time, keep the white space, if that makes any sense.
Grabbing my Blender Pen & SU! Marker – Poppy Parade, I coloured parts of the sails, along with a small part of the boat. I drew a couple of birds with my Stampin’ Write Journaler.
I adhered this piece to the smaller piece of Night of Navy, then to the DSP & finally to the larger piece of Night of Navy with Snail Adhesive. I adhered a piece of Ribbon down the Left Hand Side of the card, tied a knot & adhered the whole lot to the Base Card, again with Snail Adhesive.
My greeting was stamped onto a scrap of Whisper White using the Night of Navy SU! Marker and cut into the shape of a flag. I threaded a piece of Linen Thread through a button prior to adhering to the banner & finally to the card.
