.... I thought I'd let you know that Jonathan arrived safely in Detroit on Monday night. The flight landed early, but he had a long wait in the immigration and customs queue, so they cancelled each other out! He picked up his car after leaving the airport - he says that it's going to take a while to get used to driving on the right hand side of the road. And the hotel is very nice, which is good as he's going to be there a while.
The card I'm sharing today is a birthday card for my Great nephew, Callum, he'll be 4 years old next week. I've used the layout from this week's CAS-ual Fridays - CFC26 challenge - just getting it in on time, and the colours are from the current Ribbon Reel - RR14 challenge - turquoise, hot pink and cream, and a ribbon!
Despite Callum's card being really clean and simple in design, it took a while to make! I layered some turquoise, holographic pink and cream card to make the base layer. As the card is for a little boy, I decided to use some turquoise raffia for the ribbon. I stamped the number 4 onto turquoise card and cut it out and placed it on the raffia ribbon. For decoration I've used a really sweet studded robot and some cogs. And finally, I added a simple birthday sentiment in turquoise.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Free Spirit Sentiments; Papermania - Typography No 4
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Stampin' Up! - Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: TPC Studio - Blips & Beeps Robots; Raffia ribbon, peel off cog and card from stash
It's really dull and grey here today - I've had the lights on all day!! But it is still quite mild - and hopefully that'll continue for a while. That's all for now - I'll be back tomorrow with another card to share.
