Saturday challenges

Add caption

It is my long suffering Husband's birthday on 7th March and as I am going to be in England until the 6th visiting my 16yo daughter  Lydia I decided to get ahead a bit and enter some new challenges!
I am entering this card for these challenges:    Simon Says Stamp coffee-and-cream
Cards for Men recipe 1 Image, 2 Design Papers, 3 Embellishments (either 3 the same or 3 different) also the MMSC92  Midnight madness sketch challenge 92. I had a bit of 'clean and simple' thing as my husband is not into the more embellised style of card... but I think this one is a bit TOO clean and simple simple....!!
I used Papermania Hawthorn and Bramble paper & card stock, buttons from my stash, Pink Petticoat digi image coloured in Paint Shop Pro, Viva orange pen for the candle falmes and , Glossy accents on the candles and cake. Nestabilities labels 19 new this week and love it all ready!

  8. Hi Donna thanks for your comment on my card for the LIM wk4 challenge, very kind of you.

    Hope you don't mind me saying that i can't read the comments at the bottom of the page as there is not enough contrast between your background and the colour of the text. Also your copyright notice text is too dark to be seen. Hope this helps with your blog design.

    Have a great weekend:-)
