Seize the birthday - Nothing but neutrals.

Please scroll down one post for my Case this sketch card

Hi there!

Time for a new challenge at Seize the birthday ! The optional topping this time is to use only neutral colors. But as always, you have the choice to link any newly created birthday card !


                                         



My card to invite you to play along:




I love the look of white, kraft and black, so that was the way to go!

The black grid and flower were cut with my Silhouette. The leaves were die cut (Sizzix branch with leaves #2)

Sentiment from hero arts.

I am linking my card to the Simon says stamp challenge to use your favourite technique or product.
{ using dies and my Silhouette as my favourite }

Thanks for visiting me today !

Oh Hannelie! You've done it again! You've made a beautifully designed card that makes my head spin. That grid pattern behind your flower, leaves, and vellum panel is brilliant. And the font on the sentiment gives your card a bit of softness too. This is just wonderful. Bev

I love the whimsical, wonkiness of the grid! When I see you create with these extra little twists it makes me wonder why I never come up with cool ideas like this! Sure glad you do though cuz I'm always inspired!

Gerrina said...

Wat een sjeike kaart! Mooi dat zwart en wit op het kraft. Lijkt wel een trellie tegen een muur waar de mooie bloem tegenaan groeit... Weer een heel mooie kaart! Geniet van het weekend!

Ooooo, vrou, ek het nie meer woorde om jou mooi skeppings te besing nie, jong!!! Dis eenvoudig asemrowend mooi!!! Alles is so perfek soos net jy dit kan doen!!!!
Dis nou al kwart voor twaalf, maar ek het nou alweer so baie inspirasie by jou gekry, ek wil nou gaan sit en kaartjies maak!!!! Dit sal maar moet wag tot more!!! Ek is so bly om te sien dat jy nou weer baie besig is met kaartjies en 'n hele paar posts die laaste paar dae gedoen het - dit beteken vir my dat dit goed gaan met jou en dit maak my hart bly!!! Ek wens net ek kon meer gereeld by almal uitkom, maar die tyd is maar baie keer te min, omdat ek mos maar met ander goed ook besig is. Ek probeer maar op 'n weeklikse basis bybly, maar selfs dit is partykeer moeilik!!! Maar nou is dit tyd om in die bed te kom, anders is ek more te moeg om by als uit te kom wat gedoen moet word!!!!
Soos altyd lekker by jou gekuier, vrou!!!!
Groete en 'n heerlike naweek!!!
