AAA Cards #86

Hi All

A new challenge srats today at AAA cards.

This challenge is;

Clean and Simple cards where the main focus is diecuts

My 'Birthday' die is the main focus here and has been cut with fun foam to give it dimension to really help you focus on it.

Here I have used our Sponsor, STAMPlorations, images and dies. The grungy background stamps have been heat embossed. They are from the set Celebrate Artsy. The die cut 'Birthday' can be found here in the store. That tiny 'HAPPY' is from one of my fav sets Holiday Artsy-it under went some stamp surgery!

This card is for my crafty buddy Kim who is celebrating her Birthday today-hope it arrived in time Kim and have a wonderful day xx

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very talented Judy-take a look at her blog here and prepare to be inspired!

Our DT have all made amazing cards to inspire you-check them out here

I will enter this into:
