A birthday wish.

Hi there!

The cue word this week at Casology is PURPLE!

A color I usually associate with a sympathy card. I wanted to see if I could use the color in a different way. By adding a sentiment in gold and sequence as embellishment , I think it changes the 'feeling' of the purple... to something more festive, suitable for a birthday.




The font I used to cut my sentiment is called 'Lobster two' . After cutting it, I remove it and colored it with a gold marker and glued it back in position.
That's it!


Thanks for visiting me today!

I love the gold and purple combo, never thought this combo would look so amazing :)

Funny, I think of it as a sympathy colour too! I've been researching, and it's considered a 'half-mourning' colour. I love the fun way you've placed your sentiment! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology!

Vrou, ek sou nou nooit gedink het dat goud en pers so mooi bymekaar sal gaan nie!! Dis baie treffend en wat die kaartjie so mooi afrond is die fyn randjies om jou bloke. Baie kreatiewe manier om jou sentiment te plaas. Baie oulik!!
Groete
