Another swirly paper card

I've spent this afternoon making another card, as the kids are behaving, all the housework is done, so I am having some me time without feeling guilty!

I've made this card using a sketch from 'Skipping Stones Design, and incorporated the colours from the current 'Creative Inspirations' challenge which is to use Chocolate and Mint.

I had a lot of off cuts from doing my mum's party invitiations earlier this week, and so this was a fairly quick card for me to make, since I had already done a couple of of spare butterfly toppers. All I have done is made 2 lots of mats of silver, brown and swirly green paper, added a sentiment and a couple of flat back gems and the card is done. Very easy, and I love the simplicity of the sketch.

Challenges entered: Skipping Stones Design - sketch; Creative Inspirations - chocolate and mint; Pollycraft - happy birthday; Shelley's Images Blog - happy birthday; Charisma Cardz Challenge - anything but a square; Craftalicious Challenge - birthdays
