Colour Challenge 15 – block birthday

Here's the second card I was working on last night for Kristina's colour challenge. You can see the inspiration pic here:With this one, I tried to mimic the stitching on the pillows. I think it would be a good masculine card, which I usually find quite hard to do. Gorgeous hubby Damien liked it anyway (well the almost finished one he saw the morning), so I'm happy with that. This card is a nod to my fave scrapper Cathy Zielske & her love of common margins & straight placement. No tilting here! Shock horror, the only stamping is the very contemporary happy birthday greeting from 'Occasional Greetings'. I made the white chain using the small & large oval punches. Anyway enough said, hope you like it. Have a great day. Off to see Mamma Mia at the movies with Cara.

Supplies:
Stamps: Occasional Greetings
Card: choc chip, close to cocoa, certainly celery, really rust, whisper white
Ink: Choc chip
Tools: small & large oval punch
