Birthday Blues

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for popping along today. Next week is my sisters birthday, she's going on holiday for it so I'm giving her a card and present tonight before she goes.

She loves homemade gift wrap and made her own Xmas wrap last year (she's not into crafting at all so was a big deal for her lol!) so I thought I'd make her a card with co-ordinating wrapping paper for her birthday:

And here is the card and pressie together:

For both card and wrap I used one of Darcy's new stamp releases from Paperartsy - I love those flowers! On the card I used distress markers to colour the images, on the wrap I stamped with chipped sapphire distress ink and coloured the little dots with distress marker.

The card sentiment is from Paperartsy also but from a new JOFY plate - the happy was coloured using distress markers also.

Lots of white space and a very clean and simple style as that is the card style she likes best.

Well hopefully she'll like both card and present when I give them to her later on.

Thanks for calling by today,

Love Claire x
