A Sunday Evening Quickie

Hi all, well I said I would be back "later", but I didn't mean this much later!  I got rather carried about making a birthday card for my brother-in-law.

This is Toad's brother, the husband of the sister-in-law who said her birthday card was "nicely put together".  Not that I am still annoyed by that or anything ......

Anyway, he is a difficult chap at the best of times to make a card for but I supplemented my inky splats stamps this week and so got the inks out and got colourful.

A very simple card but personally I love the end result
The large Happy Birthday is from a Hero Arts set
Inky splats are Visible Images and Kaisercraft sets
And I have discovered WH Smith black art paper - gorgeous quality and great for die cutting and matting layers
Coloured inks are all Memento pads

Enjoy the rest of your evening.  Hope to see you tomorrow when I shall be here bright eyed and bushy tailed with my DT card for Without Words Challenge.

Hugs all
Squirrel xx

LOVE the colours on this, a great card.

Thanks for the thumbs up for the black paper at WH Smiths, sometimes the black card is too heavy on a card, so will pay a visit and get some. :)

I'm sure his wife will agree that it has a very appropriate sentiment for a birthday, and the envelope fits it very well.


Seriously, it's lovely; colourful yet masculine, quirky and effective.

Shame about the coffee cup ring stain in the bottom left corner though. ;0)

Big hugs, Kat xx

Hey! This card is nicely put together too! Oh my, I'd forgotten about that. This is not your usual Squirrel Doings that's for sure. It's quite bright and vibrant-just right for a festive birthday card.
