July Birthdays ...

July is a busy month in our family for birthdays (including mine!!) fortunately I have quite a stock of suitable cards to cover most of them for once I have been quite organised.  However, my favourite brother* has a special birthday at the end of this week and it has taken some thinking about to come up with an appropriate card.  Having spent most of the week procrastinating over the design I had a bit of a breakthrough yesterday and this is it:




I used:

Distress Inks - Vintage Photo, Rusty Hinge, Tea Dye and Spiced Marmalade
Stampin Up - Off the Grid and Gorgeous Grunge.
Scrabble Tiles

This week the "Less is More" challenge is to use Earthtone Colours - as I've used these colours I will enter the challenge.

Enjoy!

* I should come clean - I only have one brother!!
