Daisy Doodles and simple

There's a new challenge at Daisy Doodles...starting today. They call it simple with only one embellishment.
My card was so simple I decided to make three. I had a birthday party to go to. The brand new baby, Kevin was born September 3, his two sisters' bdays are Sept 5th and 8th. Kevin's, my son, is Sept 12. Next year we will have to buy 4 gifts for one party. They always celebrate all the birthdays with one party. Better start a Christmas account just for the September birthday club. Let me not forget that one of our DD's bday is Sept 20th. Anywho, I made these three simple, very simple.
And there is no inside, but the greeting is on the pull out card.
Ariel just loved that is was different. It was funny to watch her try to open the card, then she realized...pull the yellow ribbon!
The next card was for Casidhe, she's seven, and she only cared about the gifts. Typical!
The inside was a piece of scrap that had been shoved through the Cuttlebug a number of times prior to the birth of this card.
White paper has seen CB folder 'Textile' and more than a couple of nesties, round and oval scalloped. It had a very interesting center that was plain and tons of marks all around it. sponged it with Ballet Blue to bring out the textures. I thought it looked cool.
Last but not least, my fave.
I got into the deep sea fishing tackle box and raided it. Found several huge hooks and settled on a somewhat smaller one. I like that it was dark and shiny. Tied it to the paper with fishing line.
All the images you see here are from the Daisy Doodles store. The sentiments are from the same set, 'Only Words'.
The birthday candles are from the set by the same name 'Birthday Candles'.
Thanks for coming by!
Hope you enjoy the rest of the DT creations.
