Birthday Blocks

Hi, I'm entering this card into the challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays  where the theme is colour blocks.

Yes, it does look like I've taken a literal view of the challenge here!! But at least I've moved on from butterflies...for now!

Since my squares were made using scrappy snippets, I'm also entering the Snippets Playground over at Pixies Crafty Workshop

Materials used: Spellbinders die ( I did wonder what I would ever use the tiniest square for!!); Provocraft embossing folder( I love this embossing folder, it's part of the Asian set I think. I keep borrowing it from my sister's friend!); sentiment sticker and snippets of cardstock from stash.

Thanks for looking:)

  1. Hi Cathy! Absolutely stunning and very striking car. Love the coloured squares on the embossing folder - they seem to be totally made for one another.

    You get to be first in the Playground this week :) For some reason I've missed a few of your recent posts - have just been looking back and you've made some lovely cards!

    It's early Sunday morning here - hope your cooking of dinner is going well :)

    Hugs, Di xx

  15. Hello Cathy, lovely snippet card. Now, I've got nothing against butterflies - love them in fact, but this does make a fab change. The vibrant blocks of colour against the white embossed background is eye-catching. Elizabeth xx
