World card making day …

It’s world card making day today, and it just so happens that it is also the birthday of my lovely friend and upline – Michelle Last.  So of course I couldn’t resist getting out my crafting supplies to make this card to send Michelle some birthday greetings, using lots of different products from the quatrefancy suite from Stampin’ Up …

Michelle's birthday card

I love this year’s in-colours from Stampin’ Up – they just go so well together – coastal cabana and strawberry slush – yum!  I did a little bit of distressing around the edges of the whisper white cardstock, and then just layered up the other elements with stampin’ dimensionals. 


The first Around the World Stampin’ Up Challenges competition closed this week and I was so happy to learn that I won the Readers’ Choice vote for my masculine birthday card!

So a big thank you to everyone who voted for my card – I am delighted and overwhelmed by your comments and support.  Big crafty hugs to you all!

I will wear my badge with pride …
