Happy Birthday & a Winner!

Hey & Happy Sunday!

Apologies for my absence over the past few days, but I am finally back & into the groove of some creativity and made a few cards this morning. My first card can be seen HERE on the NEW Uniko Studio Challenge post.

My second card is my next instalment of my Pinterest Inspired creations. Again, it was a pin that immediately sparked creativity and I knew exactly how I was going to use the inspiration!

Here is this weeks pin...

And this is what I created...

A masculine geometric themed birthday card. I liked the colours in the inspiration but decided I would use brighter colours and I am pleased with the result. I'm thinking now that this would look pretty awesome in a rainbow colour effect too!

Again, I have used the January Blog Hop featured set Accent Essentials: Arrows to create dome of elongated triangles. This brings me on nicely to announce the long over due winner of the blog hop. So without further ado chose comment no.130 and in counting the comments in order of the hop the winner is....

LOVE...LOVE....LOVE those distress trees :)
