Happy b*day!

Hi there!

In 2 day's time, our youngest daughter celebrates her 18th birthday. It's also her best friend's birthday today, so I think it is safe to say she will be too busy to take a peep at mom's blog, and I can show you the card I made for her!



I used a stencil to sponge the panel at the back with '18 ' in shades of pink, purple and turquoise.
For the front panel I chose vellum and a sentiment cut with my Silhouette, because I did't want to hide too much of the stencilled background.

With the help of the sketch from Retro sketches, this card came together quick and easy! Love it when that happens!

Anything goes Birthday at Seize the birthday

We love you Danielle!


Thanks for looking!

This is a perfect design for the sketch. It's so nice when you can personalize the card. Happy Birthday to Danielle, although she looks likes she's thinking "Oh no, not another picture."

WOW! Such an awesome card for your daughter! Love your stenciled background and the font on the alphas is so fun! I'll bet your daughter loved it!

Love your card! The velum overlay is sooooo cool!

Gorgeous photo! Danielle is the splitting image of you! You two could pass for sisters (...not that she looks old but because you look so awesomely young!)

O, vrou, ek kan net dink dat jou pragtige meisiekind mal was oor die kaartjie!!! Ek het nou vir lank net gesit en kyk en kyk daarna en alles waardeer wat so lieflik is daarop!! Ek is natuurlik mal oor die vellum - dit is so heerlik om daarmee te werk!! Die letters wat jy uitgesny het is ook so pragtig en die sterretjie vat natuurlik die koek - so slim!! Pragtig, vrou!!
Groete.
NS. As ek so vir 'n paar dae net gehekel en gebrei het en ek kom dan weer terug by al die kaartjie blogs is ek sommer weer geinspireer om kaartjies te maak!! Ek moet juis aandag gee aan my Moedersdag kaartjies, want voor ons weet is dit Moedersdag!!
Ek dink ek moet more weer 'n slag gaan shop vir mooi papier en aan die werk spring met 'n paar kaartjies - en weer vir 'n slag iets op my blog sit!!!
...en o, ek kan nie help om my elke keer te verkyk aan jou dogter se pragtige bos hare nie - sy moet dit tog nooit knip nie, hoor - dis stunning!!!!
