Happy Birthday Jer!

Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing the birthday card I made for my youngest son's birthday. :)  Jer loved the artsy design!  :)

For the card I used a piece of alcohol ink drop paper that I created recently ... bright orange, yellow and lime green.  I die-cut it with the sticks frame, along with cutting a second frame from black.

I used snippets of black and alcohol ink panels to create the main focal point of my card, so I'm heading over to the Snippets Playground for some fun!

ETA:  Thanks to Trina and Darnell for giving me a prompt, I'm entering into the Less Is More #329 - Geometric.  :)

Absolute perfection Loll! I adore that die, been on a waiting list for ages for it, and you used it perfectly with the wonderfully bright colours in those inks. Love this - and it's great to see you in the Playground as well. I promise to come and play over at your challenge you run with Bonnie - just seems to be not enough hours in the day right now!
