Another quick one...


I seem to be making a lot of fairly simple cards at the moment - I've had a request for a big batch of different cards, and there's also other orders, my box at hubby's work, my own cards for family and Christmas and DT work, and some preparation for my next demo which is on Saturday.... do you ever feel like you might have taken a bit too much on?!

Anyway.... I made this card yesterday, and it was quick and simple so I made a few in different colours - I won't bore you with them all though!  I've used an 'ABC Christmas' sketch from a few weeks ago.  The birthday spiral sentiment is from Elzybells, stamped on bright pink cardstock from Papermill.  The spotty paper is DCWV, with black coredinations cardstock and some black card candy.  Nestie circles and blossom dies used to cut out and mount the sentiment.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Simple but very elegant - love the sentiment stamp, such a pity that Elzybells has gone out of business.
