Hello … bonjour! I’m celebrating today with one of the sweetest souls in blogland … I know you’ll know her from her delicious blog, Happy Dance … and if you don’t, you really need to! Happy, happy, happiest birthday, Bev, ma chère amie … may your day be filled with joy, love and laughter … and may your year to come be blessed with the closeness of family, the warmth of friends, and the delights of new discoveries! I made this for you, which might or might not have already arrived … if it’s not already with you, it’s pretty close …
A white card panel, stamped with the most delicious delicate leaf sprig from Concord & 9th‘s Wildflower set (NBUS!). It was coloured with Distress Ink and Zigs and the panel was trimmed down so that a couple of the leaves just peek out over the top edge. The sentiment (SSS) has the die cut word ombré sponged and stacked on craft foam, and the supplementary black strips white heat embossed and popped up on foam tape. I sponged a slender black frame onto the card base, adhered the finished panel over it with craft foam, and added some clear sequins with enamel accent centres to finish off.
Bev’s card is heading to …

ETA … was going to link to the new Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge, but realised just in time that there’s a limit on the number of additional challenges … oops!
Before I go, there’s just one more thing to do. As you may know, Bev throws the most amazing virtual birthday parties … but as it’s her special day, she won’t be doing that for herself. So, here’s a little surprise get together for her … the table’s set … the champagne’s poured …
the food’s all ready … and of course, there’s a yummy birthday cake … help yourself!
I never thought last year’s gift could be topped, Bev … THE craft island … which for those of you who never saw it looks like this …
however, I did find something to complement it, just in case you feel like a change of crafting scenery! Joyeux Anniversaire, sweet friend … enjoy every moment!
It’s lovely of all of you to be here for Bev‘s party … it makes the celebration so much fun … and you can always pop over to Happy Dance if you’d like to wish her a happy birthday in person … which I’m sure you would!
Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita🙂
