Easy, lazy but know how and where, I suppose

A simple card  :   Cryogen*
Inkjet, created from microsoft clipart
Craft concepts Embossing Folder  :  Flutterby
Submitted to PanPastel UK Challenge 4 Happy Birthday

Microsoft provide and easily accessible clipart,  which can be searched according to type or colour.  The one below I saved on a previous looksee,  doesn't seem to be available now,  so if you wish to save it,  right click the image, select ''save as'' then download to your computer.  I usually put everything in a folder on desktop then file it later.  The above image has been scanned, but the rendering has made it a lot darker than the original graphic, but having said this, it's also the effect of the *Cryogen card to mute the colours, but worth the sparkle finish.

I can't find to hand at the moment the Microsoft clipart copyright policy, but it's basically based on an individual not claiming it to be theirs or to use it for commerical purposes.  When I come across it, I'll
post the link.

Just a general note, I don't usually make my inserts as I go along.  I make them according to the person I send them to, so the insides are personalised.  Occasionally I make up boxed sets of cards and the inserts will be in 'general terms' but the senders address is printed on the left inside.  A simple card like this, would normally have the image repeated on the inside,  so the theme is carried through the whole card.
