Birthstones

April already folks, boy this year is flying past! Next week we have both boys home from Uni for their Easter break, Alan gets three weeks off but Colin only gets one :(

But before all that, we have a new challenge over at MAWTT, and its Hazel who has set our theme.  She has asked us to make a card using our birthstone colour.  And in case you are struggling to know what that is, here's a helpful little chart;



Now my birthday in March so I'm aquamarine and after much searching, I decided that this image off the Ooh La La CD - The Shawn Jenkins Collection kinda captured the colour I was after.


I love the sentiment on this card, and the card itself is very plain - the image says it all!  It's just layered up then finished off with pearls.

Challenges;
7 Kids College Fund - Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesdays - Anything goes
Try it On Tuesday - They who have wings
TPE292 - Anything Goes
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
CD Sunday - Sentiment - love it!
