Happy birthday Sarah!

Hi there!

Another birthday in blog land! Today is  Sarah's turn to celebrate!

You are in for a treat if you visit Sarah... she makes beautiful CAS cards and always inspire and encourage me with her thoughtful comments.

Sarah this one is for you... hope you are enjoying a wonderful birthday and that you will be blessed with health and happiness all year round!


hand made happy birthday card using die cuts in berry colours


My card was inspired by 3 challenges:

Less is more  ~ Berry colors

The paper players  ~ Create a square card

Addicted to cas  ~ Banners


My card features banners in 3 berry colors and a sentiment created and cut with my Silhouette.
The font is Century gothic. I just removed the centre of the a and the 2 p's , and replaced it with a little flower, to use the negative space included in the letters in a more interesting way. I added 3 small pearls to embellish it. The birthday part was cut using the same font, just upper case letters.

That's it for today... have a great week and thanks for visiting me today!

Great idea to replace the letter cutouts with flower cutouts. Love the look of this and may have to try it sometime with my Cricut. Your bright colors make this a very festive card, too. It's fabulous!

WOW! WOW! and more WOW! Hannelie you are making me all teary-eyed reading this post and sorry I didn't get to you yesterday - my dad was celebrating his 70th yesterday too although his birthday was the day before so busy day! I spotted a comment from Darnell this morning saying she'd seen your post so had to jump right across! I'm stunned - what a brilliant birthday treat card! Your delightful and graphic design shining through! I LOVE it! Simply perfect and thank you so much for your warm wishes and compliments!

very sweet card !! I love your cards, especially ones with your silhouette in action! Thank you for the lovely and encouraging words on my blog!

Petra Swart said...

Pragtig, vrou!!! Mal oor jou kleure en die slim blommetjies!!! Hou van die perfekte balans met die reterkantse en linkerkantste blommetjies wat dieselfde hoeveelheid pienk in hulle het!!!! Joe, jou sentiment is so perfek gedoen vrou - albei woorde is eenvoudig perfek geplaas en die helling waarteen jy alles gedoen het werk fantasties!!!! Perfekte balans ook tussen die gekleurde bokant en die white space onder!!! Die pereltjies is lieflik!!! Dis 'n wenner hierdie vrou!!!! Briljant gedoen!!!
Groete en 'n heerlike Woendag vir jou!!!
