Happy Birthday with Love

This is the other card that I made to enter the Less is More 5th Birthday challenge this week.  As I mentioned yesterday I made two cards and I'm not particularly happy with either of them, everyone else seemed to quite like the one I published yesterday though!

For this one I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder, a Marianne Creatables die set and a Craftwork Cards sentiment which I embossed with gold embossing powder.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More - White on White
Crafty Girls Creations Challenge 14 - Always Anything Goes
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 350 - Make Your Own Embellishments
Little Miss Muffet Challenge 131 - Anything Goes

Thank you for calling today, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

Another lovely card Pauline. I often think that crafters are far too critical of their own work!

Gorgeous card, I love this less is more style. Maybe also try to combine the white with a different color, you will get a totally different feeling from basically the same card.
Hugs, Petra

I love the embossed birthday background layer and the pretty flower. White on white and CAS is always a hard combination to pull off but you did a great job

Such a sweet card Pauline. I think that this was one of the first embossing folders I ever bought. I think I need to get it out and dust it off after seeing your card. Have a lovely weekend x

Well I loved yesterday's card and I love this one too. Of course I'm a less is more type of gal so they both are right up my alley. The gold and white look wonderful together.

I don't know why you don't like them, to me they're both beautiful. Maybe you have an urge to add more? I usually do, but if that's the case, I can assure you no more is required here:)

Thank you so much for joining us at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and good luck!

Another elegant gold and white card! No conflicts on this one and it is quite lovely. I know how it goes that sometimes cards don't suite our fancy. Keep in mind they probably tickle someone else's though.
