Happy Birthday to my AWESOME bloggy friend, Ardyth Percy-Robb!
The details: as some of you may know, another FABULOUS bloggy friend Darnell Knauss has organized a birthday surprise for Ardyth. Several people are posting cards made for Ardyth and linking back to Darnell's blog (what a lovely hostess!) If you would like to join in the fun, please do, and link your "Happy Birthday, Ardyth" card to Darnell's blog.
OK, back to Birthday Business.
Ardyth has such a distinct CAS style, you can spot one of her amazing cards a mile away in a gallery. Especially if it has horses or a piano on it! So naturally I wanted to make a card in her style, and I immediately knew which card I wanted to CASE.
It's this lovely. And I'm so pleased that I was able to find it right away. I remembered it was a Thank You card, so clicked on her Thank You gallery and there it was. Couldn't be easier!
And here's my CASE. Very similar ... except now looking at it again I realize that the base is a little different, with the circle floating on this one.
Since it is Ardyth's birthday, I must send her good wishes, in addition to letting her know that she rocks. So I tilted the design from the front and added the sentiment down the middle.
While I was on her blog getting links, I saw her birthday post as the host of One Layer Wednesday, where the theme is to make a card that she would like. She goes on to describe her card-making style. I was excited to read how I got it all, except for the very last bit! Here's her description:
"As for design, you know I love cheerful bright colours - YES
(especially aquas - YES!
and rainbows) - YES!!!
and clean design with lots of white space. - YEP
Oh, yeah, and SPARKLE! -Rats, missed this one.
Anyway, please check back with Darnell's blog to see who else is wishing Ardyth a fantastic birthday, or to participate yourself. Ardyth, I hope you feel the love today and get some time to enjoy yourself!
Thanks for looking!
