Mojito Birthday

I'm a little late for the Less is More Challenge this week, but better late than never!

It's a colour challenge and I have made a very simple Birthday card.


I've used the inlaid die-cutting technique again, the 'happy' is a Die-namics die cut out of Nitwit papers and the 'Birthday' is a Hero Arts Stamp.  I punched the small stars with an X-cut punch and added some 3D Crystal Lacquer to them.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less-is-More Week 183 - Colour Challenge
color sip
Going Grey With Scrap-Creations Challenge - Birthday
Fan-Tastic Tuesday Challenge 47 - Anything Goes
Crafting from the Heart Challenge 30 - Always Anything Goes
Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge 115 - Anything Goes, with a twist of Stripes

Thank you so much for visiting me today, I always appreciate you taking the time to pop in.
