The Paper Shelter Challenge #260 Birthday Wishes

Good Morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. We have been away having a summer break, so I hope you have all had a lovely time crafting away. I know I did as well a visiting London to do a bit of touristing, shopping and seeing The Lion King! It was absolutely amazing, although the trip cost me a fortune. I love London, but if I lived there I would be either very fit from all the walking everywhere or skint as it costs so much! LOL

Anyway, onto the card and challenge. this week we are challenging you to create a project celebrating birthday wishes! Nice and easy one I think!

I used the gorgeous Holiday Time! for my card. I wish I had lived in the 1960s and been part of the hippie movement. Love the clothes and I would have loved an original Beetle, not the new ones. They're just not the same, but I don't want an old one now as they don't have all the mod cons that my Mazda has! LOL

I created a faux step card for this one for something different to do.

And here is a side view so you can see the folds a bit better...
