Happy Birthday Card

Hi there!

While making this card, I was wondering how on earth I managed to make a card before I had the inspiring spark of a sketch challenge!

The sketch at case this sketch challenge this week did just that... helped me to create something I would never think of before!



The idea of the flowers got stuck... and I came up with this :







The cuts were made freehand with my craft knife... added some pearls, a flower , leaves and a sentiment... all popped up with foam tape on green card base.
Very quick and easy!

Thanks for looking!
Have a great day!

It is almost midnight here so bedtime for me (your post just came through on my e-mail a minute ago)

Fabulous shade of green! Love the Tilth flower die and the pearls. Great job free hand cutting! I'm sure I wouldn't have a finger left if I tried that!

Happy Sunday to you too :)

The cuts are AMAZING Hannelie! I thought you made them with a Silhouette Cameo. Your skill at cutting free hand is terrific!!! Love the large flower and the line of pearls. So glad you played along with us in this week's CAS(E) this Sketch!

I love it, love the green, the pearls.....can't believe you cut the curved slits by hand. I'm green with envy. LOL I love this card, but since I always make more than one, I don't see myself making multiple slits.

Oh how I love this card! I loved this sketch, but would never have come up with your fabulous idea and to think you cut it all by hand!

WOW!! Awesome!!
