Simple Flower

So I am back for the last Caardvarks Challenge – to make a monochromatic card (couldn’t resist).  So I used some inspiration from the current Clean & Simple Layout.  It’s a good place to go when the mojo is low, the FTL sketches are always fab!  I had a little help from two of my nieces (ages 7 & 8).  They were visiting after a day at the beach, we have had sooooo much rain here in the past few weeks it has been wonderful to finally see the sun.  I thought I would also share the card that the girls made (with very minimal help from me – and a few token scraps lifted from the desk).

Happy Birthday
Made by Grace (age 8 ) & Ally (age 7)
