A Card Cheat!

I cheated and made a very, very quick card, in other words, no stamping, just patterned paper, this time from My Minds Eye "Chalkboard Collection".

It's my nephews birthday, so this is the card  I made him:


And I also added a touch of Copic colouring to some of the flags on the banners to match the stripy paper strip.

That's it from me.  I do have a "tangled" gift I made to share with you, but I just need to purchase a frame for it first.  So that's it from me for tonight.  I'm off to bed, just too many 12h30 am bedtimes this week, it's caught up with me.  Have a great day!
