Happy Birthday Steph!

Hello there!

Today is my sister's birthday and I really hope she likes her birthday card.  She's a big fan of purple so hopefully she will :)

I made this card with the help of this months' St. Luke's Charity Challenge.  The challenge is to create a one layer card.  I don't think I've ever made a one layer card before?! I love foam tape so this was certainly a challenge!

I decided to try something I saw on Jennifer Rzasa's (amazing!) blog a little while ago.  I nested positive die cuts within negative ones and this is how it turned out....

And just to prove it's only a single layer....

Thank you to Jennifer for the inspiration, St Luke's for the challenge and a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my sister!

Thanks for dropping by  :)
