Day 344 (365 Cards) and Practical Scrapper - Brads Challenges




I never really considered the time it takes to creat a card! A "challenge" doesn't even describe it! But I am trying to stick with it! Here is the card I came up with the sketch for day 344 (yes, I am one day behind...but WILL catch up)!




I used textured cardstock for the card and smooth cardstock for the matting. Patterned paper is used for the backing. I also used coordinated scrapbook papers to make the paper flowers. The center of the flowers are a simple brown brad. A stamp was used for the "Happy Birthday". I also used baby blue ink to swipe across the the text to also bring out the blue. A EK Success edge punch was used at the bottom of the card.
