Sweet and Simple ~ Picture Perfect Birthday

I have set myself a little challenge ~  to make a card every week to 10 days, using a small amount of equipment and supplies – kind of like one of those cookery shows where you are given 3 or 4 ingredients and you have to turn it into a spectacular 4 course meal.  Then you find the basics such as stock, herbs and spices etc are ‘pantry’ items and it turns out that the meal was made with a whole host of ‘hidden’ stuff we did not know about.

So the ‘pantry items’ for my challenge are going to be, adhesive, Stampin Trimmer, Bone folder and Paper-Piercing tool.  I am going to attempt to create  with 1 stamp set and some ink pads, 1 embellishment (other than paper or card)  and one additional tool, probably a punch.  Wish me luck!
