More crafting in the hotel...

We are currently staying in the Trianon Hotel, Abu Dhabi...
We leave on Saturday to go back to the UK for a while - then my husband Kevin will start a new job in Mumbai - exciting times ahead!

Anyway my resources in the Hotel are minimal -  and in fact they are diminishing fast!
But I have still been able to make a Birthday card for my nephew, mainly layers of paper and a few bicycle brads - but I like the sentiment
'may each road lead to where you want to go'
It feels quite appropriate as we are just on the move...

I am going to submit this card to My Craft Creations: Special Occasions Challenge

And of course I could not NOT join in on the Monday Mojo #300 celebration
This is the Sketch:-
And here is my take on it - layers of pretty paper, ribbon and a 'Tim Holtz' rosette
but the main image is a real pressed Malaysian orchid...

Finally I noticed that "Catch the Bug' had a colour palette challenge

What lovely colors! Unfortunately I have no facility at the moment to print out a 'bugaboo' image - my card is just layers of pretty papers from Amy Tangerine. However it does meet the Catch the Bug Challenge colour choices!

And for me it is quite appropriate "Happy New Home!"

Happy Crafting!!
