Happy Birthday Shirley

Hi there!

Someone who's blog I've been following for some time, and who's work I really admire is celebrating her birthday today!

Happy birthday to you , Shirley !

Shirley's cards are a real inspiration and I love the artsy look of her designs. I know she loves poppy flowers...




To make the card I have cut a stencil with my Silhouette cameo using the poppy fields cutting file from the Silhouette online store. Sponged with hero arts distress inks. To add some interest I divided the design in 3 parts, and popped it up using foam tape.

I hope you will have  a fabulous day Shirley!

Off I go to link up my card at Maria from Rieslingmama who's hosting a linky party for Shirley!


Thanks for visiting me today!

Erg mooi gedaan met het zelfgemaakte stencil en de poppy's. De paneeltjes maken echt het verschil! Je vriendin zal dit prachtig vinden.

Hi, vrou, dit is nou regtig iets besonders hierdie!!! Jou poppies is pragtig - mal oor die effek wat jy met die sponging gekry het, dit lyk stunning!!!! En ja, ek sou nooit daaraan gedink het om die drie panele te sny nie en as ek dalk sou, sou ek almal ewe wyd gesny het - jy was nou weer briljant om dit verskillende wydtes te sny!!!! Jy is altyd vol aangename verrassings!!! Ek kyk en kyk nou so na die kaartjie en ek weet IRL is hy nog baie mooier as op die skerm!!! Shirley gaan beslis net so mal soos ek oor die kaartjie wees!!! Ek ken haar nie, maar gaan nou gou by haar inloer!!!
Groete, vrou en 'n baie aangename week vir jou!!!
