That Natural Feeling


Here is a birthday card I made for the latest House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, which was to create a project with a natural theme, either by using neutral colours and/or adding a natural embellishment. I used 2 neutral shades of cardstock from the wonderful Coredinations range and HOTP paper on my natural card blank, the image being stamped in Stampin Up brown ink on the paler of the 2 coredination products. The sentiment stamp is by Anita's and the sunflower is from Cuddly Buddly.


The letters spelling out my friend's name are by Crafty Secrets and the 2 natural elements are the string behind these letters and the raffia bow.
