Hello … bonjour … and bon dimanche! Hope your (long if you’re having one) weekend is going splendidly! Today is a special day for a fun and lovely friend (I know as we spent a fabulous week together IRL, along with the other BABES, at the Lake House) … she’s an uber talented, wonderfully creative and delightful CAS designer … Happy, Happy Birthday, Ardyth! May your day be blessed with love, fun and laughter (and cake!) … and may the coming year be your best one yet! I made you this card … it might already be with you … if it isn’t, it’s not far away!
I used SSS Lots of Dots to stamp all these different sized rainbow bubbles … they’re done in two or three layers of Distress Ink each (yay for MISTI!) … with some ink wiped off on the second and third passes to create a sense of dimension. The colour on each bubble was blended with Wink of Stella and I heat embossed the Papertrey sentiment. The panel was adhered flat to the card base with Ardyth-esque black strips top and bottom. I remembered to snap a detail photo before popping the card in the mail … but didn’t remember to check the focus! It’s not exactly clear … but you can at least see all the shimmery colour …
If you’re one of those rare people who’ve never visited Ardyth (what??) … do go over and enjoy oodles of awesome inspiration … and while you’re there you could leave some Happy Birthday wishes too! BTW … take a picnic (you won’t want to leave) … and be prepared to be wowed! There might even be a piece of bubbly birthday cake to be had … Ardyth‘s card is heading to …
Seize the Birthday – No Toppings
SSS Monday – Make A Wish … Birthday Wishes, of course … each of those bubbles has one in it!
SSS Wednesday – Anything Goes
I’ll be setting out on my journey of discovery around blogland shortly, to see what everyone’s been up to … look forward to seeing you there! Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
