Surprise Nonni … Happy Birthday! There’s a party going on over at Sandie’s blog, London Days, to celebrate this sweet friend’s special day. For those of you who don’t know Nonni, she’s on the Design Team with Inkspirational and with STAMPlorations, and is also the co-owner of Time Out. In addition, she’s an energetic, enthusiastic and sweet commenter … and makes the most wonderful cards across the whole range of styles … multi-talented indeed! If you get chance, do drop in for an inspiring meander around Nonni’s blog, Korttikarkuri – Runaway Cards, and also pop over to see what I know will be a fantastic Mr Linky gallery of cards over at Sandie’s London Days. Wishing you a very special day, Nonni, full of fun and laughter … and a year ahead filled with all good things! Your card is winging it’s way to you across land and sea … here’s a sneak peek …
My inspiration for the design came from this awesome rainbow card by the amazing Laura Bassen. I stamped the Avery Elle leaf in ombré colours across a panel of watercolour card, and then added a light wash of matching colour over each. The Studio Calico ‘happy’ was die cut in the ombré colours and white, and they were adhered together, marginally offset. I stamped the WPlus9 ‘birthday’ and added lashings of Wink of Stella over the leaves and the stacked die cut. The base card edges were sponged with black and the finished panel was adhered flat to it. Like a close look at the stacked ombré colours? They’re here … and you may just be able to see the merest hint of all the WoS shimmer …
