Birthdays and Beatles…

Over at the Less is More site, this week’s challenge is a recipe to use a combination of 3 previous challenges …

Oh my word… what to choose?  So many possibilities!

My friend, Sarah, asked me to make some gift vouchers for her boyfriend.  She’d decided on an 80s theme and his party invitations were in really bright colours on a black background, so I needed something that kept with the theme.  For the challenge, my card is a combination of…

Week 7 – masculine

Week 24 – circles

Week 29 – things that move



I used a combination of punches and the Party this Way stamp set from Stampin’ Up! for the card front, and the gift vouchers for the inside were designed on my computer…  



I used a white gel pen to add some highlights to the “vinyl records” to bring them to life. 

I love the way the cards looked as a group… 



Not only is it Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK, but it’s also the Mathew Street Festival in Liverpool, affectionately known as Beatles’ Weekend.  It is the biggest annual free music festival in Europe, with 5 large, open air stages, and it’s right on our doorstep – woo hoo!  The music is great, the atmosphere is fantastic and it’s a great family day out. 

I’ve checked the website and there’s a great music line-up this year so … party this way!

Thanks for dropping by today
