Birthday Scroll

It's 10:30 a.m. and the temp in my neighborhood is already 81 degrees and climbing. Need to get out that pitcher of lemonade or an ice cold beer to cool off.  Really appreciate the central A/C that I had installed just last year.

And the heat kept me inside to make a clean and simple birthday card which was the theme for today's challenge at Less is More.  I stamped my base card with one image, colored it with copics, added a sentiment and topped it off with a pretty butterfly. And that was it.

Here are the products I used:

Card Stock:  GKD
Stamps:   HFC Sun Kissed Tags & Basket, PTI Delightful Dahlia
Ink:         Memento Tuxedo Black
Butterfly:   Spellbinders Les Papillions Two
Accessories:      Copic Markers, dimensionals

Don't you just love making CAS cards? With just a few strokes with ink and markers a lovely project can be created.  Hope you enjoyed this one.

This card was entered into the following challenge(s)
Less is More - Week 125
Sister Act  -  Challenge #12 
Oozak  -  Challenge #16
