Pinterest Inspired...

Hi Everyone,
Hope you are still enjoying some good weather, with the school holidays well under way all children want to do is be outside and enjoy the sunshine. I am usually more creative if the weather is bright and fine but occasionally Mr Mojo goes on a short break and leaves me blank, then I find Pinerest to be a valuable resource for inspiration and ideas. So the next two cards are a version of what I found there the other day.


 
I scattered my MFT number dies over the cardstock and ran it through my Cutting machine, cut a ' Happy Birthday' using my Britannia Dies, placed a small piece of patterned paper behind the numbers I wanted to highlight, randomly dotted some gem stones around and raised the panel on foam pads. Quite quick and easy really the only fiddly bit was putting foam pads on the small inner parts of the '4', '6' and '8'.

I should really make a huge batch of these in various ages to keep in my box as I often get asked for a specific aged card. A project for another day perhaps?
Thanks for visiting and see you tomorrow.
