Keeping it clean
Hope you're all well and comfy! I'm done with all the meetings for this week and enjoying the glorious sunshine. Mostly in the shadow or indoors at midday I might add, I'll only turn red in the sunshine even with thick layers of SPF 30.
I've gone for the clean look with this card, nice as a change. The sentiment says Happy Birthday in Swedish. My first attempt to sew the checks to create a quilt effect was very awkward, I sat there sweating, he he. But my second try was better. Sometimes the clean look is more difficult to create, with a lot of embellies you can always hide your small faults.

Papers are from my stash. The blue one is glossy to add more interest to the card.
