Happy Birthday Less Is More

Hi all, I am here to share a couple of cards I made to celebrate the Less Is More 5th Birthday Challenge!

The theme is White On White but we can use black or metallic accents 


I made 2 quick and easy cards using a Memory Box Grand Happy Birthday and Simon's Exclusive Surprise Party Balloon Die 


I glued in a strip of acetate behind the words to add just a little bit of shine. 


For the 2nd one I added a strip of aqua glitter paper, my fave colour :-)


Thanks for looking! :-)

We have guests coming to stay for the weekend so I had better throw some bleach down the loo and push the hoover around a bit, it is nice having people over, but they do scupper any crafty plans don't they!! Unless you're called Heather that is, she is a perfect house guest ;-)

Challenges:
Less Is More    WOW
C.R.A.F.T.   Make your own embellishments ( I did glitter the white balloon, does that count? :-))
Crafters Cafe   Monochromatic
Crafting Musketeers   Monochrome
Alphabet     'Y' for You Choose



Hope you all have a great weekend :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x
