Birthday Wishes

Good morning all.

Trying to get back into crafting here...mojo is here but the room is heap lie on with stuff which doesn't yet have a home and a huge box in the middle of the floor, it really isn't conducive to creativity. I'm hoping to get some tidying up done today after Mr Tesco has delivered the groceries.

I did manage a quick play last night, after watching Liverpool win whatever round it was of the FA cup, and produced a birthday card for my nephew.

The circles dies are both from Memory Box, the sunbursty one was bought before Christmas and I just hadn't got around to using it. My second layer is silver mirri card which isn't showing too well in the photo. The interlocking circles was a sales purchase and I've cut it in both black and white card and filled in the holes. The birthday die is from Clearly Besotted and I've layered it up three times to give it some dimension. Wishes stamp is from an Imagination Crafts set. Gems from my stash.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - colour theme black, metallic plus one
Muse Challenge #99 - I used the die cut for inspiration
Simon Says Wednesday - anything goes
Virginia's View - clean slate (lots of white space)
