Happy birthday Ardyth!

Hi there!

Today is the day to celebrate Ardyth's birthday!

Ardyth is a real inspiration on my creative journey. I have learned SO MUCH from her, since we met a couple of years ago, here in our beloved blog land!

I just love to see how she is able to dig deep and look at things in a different way... the Ardyth way. If you know her, you  will know exactly what I mean!

I have a card for you Ardyth, inspired by one of the challenges where you have made your mark...

The card concept



More layers than you will do yourself Ardyth, but bold , graphic and with a little BLING!

So THIS time I will file my card into the clean and layered file ;)


                                             

I will also enter the Simon says stamp Anything goes challenge.


                                                     Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog



My background is actually an overlay { The pixel scrapper } to make digital paper. But I printed it, trimmed it to size and colored random squares with a grey Promarker.
I added a yellow Silhouette cut flower and my own sentiment .





Yes, Hope you will have fun on your special day... may it be  a GREAT one!

Thanks for visiting me today!

Really striking card. Wondering how do you get your digi sentiments placed onto the card? Love your sentiments but am struggling to work out the how.

I love the graphic play you used on this card! And the colours so beautifully used...(Summer here and about 20-25 degrees is something to look forward and enjoy...so I can't wait... :) Sounds a lot better, don't you think?)
Great card! Hugs, Gerrina

Striking, vibrant, fun and funky Hannelie. I too adore Ardyth's cards so must pop over to wish her a happy day but I adore your take on cards too ... each one so unique and perfect.

O, dit is perfek vir Ardyth, vrou!!!! Fantastiese interpretasie van die inspirasie foto!! Daai blom is lieflik en die vierkantige steentjie in die middel werk so goed saam met die abstrakte patroon!! Hou daarvan dat jy nie al die vierkantjies grys ingekleur het nie. Die font van jou sentiment is perfek gekies - lyk pragtig!! Lieflik, vrou!!

Groete

Bold and graphic and this captures Ardyth's style perfectly. She'll love it!

Hannelie, you've made a lovely card, in perfect accordance with Ardyth's style! She is going to love this one absolutely!!! It's wonderful, and I love that you've made your own dp (and sentiment) too. The flower is so cool, and in a perfect yellow. Love this one...and just have to pin it, hope you don't mind. Bev

Love this my friend! I just found it on Pinterest - I've been at the school all day organizing and hosting the Staff Appreciation Lunch on behalf of all the school parents and had no idea you had made a card for me until this very minute! I love the geometric pattern and the colour palette!(and I LOVE the layered blossom!). PLUS, I'm so glad you joined us at the Card Concept! Thanks for the birthday wishes - it's been busy but great!

Scrumptious. And if Ardyth did layers, they would look like this.

Beautiful card and a GREAT sentiment. Love your card design. I've about played out my "oh happy DAY" and this will make a wonderful alternate/new sentiment to use.
