Cute Card Thursday # 24 Bright Colours

The challenge on Cute Card Thursday this week was to use bright colours.

I have left it a bit last minute but have managed to rustle this one up quite quickly using a sticker and my nesties. It does not show up very well in the picture but the black frame has been raised with foam pads and is quite effective.

Goodies I used - bug stickers by SEI, chunky alphabet by making memories, swiss dots CB folder, circle nesties, flower, ribbon and a button.

Nicky is Sixty

Here is the card I made for my brother-in-law. I find cards for men quite tricky to do and I almost ran out to the nearest Birthdays as I couldn't find anything suitable in my stash. Anyway this comical cave man came to my rescue and I hope Nicky sees the funny side.

Goodies I used - Little Adventurers 'no scissors required decoupage' (comes with 3 different ones on the sheet) and card.
