A very Happy Birthday Leanne,

The lovely Arielle who runs the fantastic blog Colour Q asked the Colour Q fans to do a card for Leanne who is part of Colour Q's talented design team. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LEANNE, hope you have a lovely day and enjoy the surprise blog hop.

Today was my day off so decided to go through all my wooden stamps and the one used on this card is one of the many that I found. I love the retro lanterns. I am not very good at stamping but I am happy with the way this stamped image turned out on the recycled craft cardstock. I stamped two of the lanterns on scrap patterned paper, cut out and stuck on the original stamped image. The main lantern has been stuck to the card with self adhesive foam squares. The Happy Birthday sentiment is a rub-on so overall this card was nice and easy but I have to admit I like the overall earthy look.

The Challenges I have included-
Moxie Fab World,Card Style week-Clean and Graphic

I hope I got the time correct for this post and again Leanne have a Very Happy Birthday :)
