Happy Birthday

Base card is ice white pearl, image is a freebie digi from Meljens which has been coloured with promarkers. Frame is a nesties label 4 (I think) which has been embossed by hand. Image has been highlighted with a gelly roll pen but I don't think this shows in the photo.
Beginning to enjoy doing these clean and simple cards and am building a nice stack of them to send to charity - which reminds me of why I was standing on the high street this morning wondering where I was going............wanted some small labels from the print shop........oh heck I'll have to go again now!!
(Note to Chrissie - the skateboarder card is for my daughter to give her big brother so no I wasn't having a moment (this time)..........but it happens frequently lol)

Challenges entered:
Less is More - OLC in the frame
DYSU - birthday
Digi Doodle Shop - no backing papers
