If you are curious…If you are determined…

Sharing a card featuring a digi image called Broken Rubik’s Cube from Designesque.

This card is going out to a cuber from work who uses a cube almost like a stress ball.  The speed at which he solves them is nothing short of amazing!  It was his milestone 30th over the weekend, which called for something more than a simple happy birthday sentiment.  Instead I’ve got what I hope comes off as a funny simile between turning 30 and the cube itself.

As my sentiment is both longer than a word and funny, I am entering my card in the current challenges at Allsorts and Crafty Catz.  Even if the sentiment is only funny in my head, I’ve got the anything goes aspect covered so still good for the Craft Catz challenge.

The layout of my card follows the current sketch at CAS Colour and Sketches.  To keep my card CAS and to tie in with my cube theme, I’ve gone for different single coloured mats matched to the colours of the cube.  There’s something really appealing of the mostly primary colours surrounded by a black border although not quite appealing enough for me to waste hours on trying to solve one the birthday boy’s numerous cubes!
