Happy Leap Year!!

** Edited to update links **

Yay!  Today is Leap Year.  A HUGE happy birthday to all of your poor people that have a birthday on 29th February.  How unfair for you not being able to celebrate on your actual day each year, but I guess it makes those 4 year birthdays oh so special!

If any of you ladies are planning to go with tradition and ask your man to marry you then I hope he’s definitely a prince and not a frog lol

I know somebody that has a birthday today and wanted to make her a fun card to celebrate.
I was inspired by the Create: challenge to create a quilt inspired card.  I wanted to make a patchwork type effect and added a bit of faux stitching.  I dug out some very old paper by K & Co, BW Mira, I just love this colour combo pad, it’s so bright and cheery!

The stamps are by Paper Smooches, the #4 die is by PTI, the ‘x’ is by Sizzix, an old set called Ida Lou’s Flower Box.

I'm also entering this card into the Papercraft Star challenge to use a frog!

Hope you like it!  Have a great day. 

I will be back tomorrow with an elegant card for the new Play Date Cafe challenge.
