Sunup To Sundown

I have to do so many guy birthday cards during the year and think this stamp from Crackerbox Palace is always a good choice.  Very CAS with some distress inks for the background and layers upon layers of the frame work.  I decided in order to give it a little dimension I'd layer three of each of the frames on top of each other.  So, lots of snippets on here and lots of grinding of the Cuttlebug.  Twine added, happy birthday on the inside, and it's a done deal!

Because of all the snippets of the frame I'll enter this in the challenge at Pixie's Crafty Workshop and the challenge at Double D Challenge - to create with a silhouette. 



Thanks for stopping by............
