CAS(e) this sketch 176

Hi there!

Wow, I was amazed to see all the wonderful inspired cards in the gallery at CAS(e) this sketch  last week. You all rocked my sketch! Thanks for everyone who played along!

But now... it's time for a new sketch with the compliments of Sam!




I used the sketch to make a personalized card for my mom, who turns 80 on the 29th of this month!
So excited because we will be travelling to South-Africa next week for this special birthday celebration!


My sentiment reads 'Happy birthday Mother' in Afrikaans.



I used a cutting file from the Silhouette online store ( design ID : #79531) for my focal point.

I removed the outline of the rose in the Silhouette studio, and cut it once more to create a stencil for my background.

Sponged the rose with picked raspberry distressed ink (Tim Holtz) and the leaves with Green Hills distress ink (Hero arts)

I am linking to Seize the birthday ~no topping option.

Hope to see you join the fun at CAS(e) this sketch this week!

Hugs
Hannelie

A trip to South Africa to celebrate your mom's 80th birthday is such a great reason to celebrate!

A stunning creation that she will love, not only because it is beautiful but because it was made by your hands from your heart! I love the soft colors paired with a bold sentiment.

Susi K. said...

Great idea to use the same gorgeous diecut on the front of your card to use as a stencil to create this lovely BG - it ties the whole thing up beautifully! And what a wonderful celebration this card was created for ... Best Wishes to your Mom!

Beautiful card Hannelie. Love the background and the die cut flower. Thanks so much for joining us at Seize the Birthday.

Sadie said...

Just love your card!! The pink is striking with the black accents and what a pretty background idea!! Thanks for sharing the Silhouette hints.

O, jou rose lyk pragtig, vrou - ek is mal oor hoe jy dit as stensil gebruik het - dit maak 'n lieflike raam vir die wit paneel met die sentiment en die roos!!! Die bietjie groen van die blaartjies en die swart perels voltooi die prentjie so mooi!!!! Ek hou van die klein 80 in die sirkeltjie!!! Eenvoudig pragtig!!! So bly vir jou dat julle hierdie spesiale dag met jou ma sal kan deel!!! My ma was in Feb 80!!!!
Groete
