Birthday CASE


Last week, when we were sneak-peeking the Uniko Studios products for August, I absolutely fell in love with this beautiful card by Aimes:

graphic flower die

The perfect frame (how did she DO that?!), the pretty colours and the gorgeous centre of the flower all just made me smile!

And it was time (past time, actually) for me to make my sister's birthday card, so I decided to case Amy's card. My sister is more of a pink girl, so I went tone-on-tone for my flower and added a PTI sentiment.

My 'attendance' over the next few days may be a little spotty. Struan's away at camp, and Michael and Kate have gone to Scotland for a vacation with Michael's family. Long way of saying I have the house to myself for a few days and really want to make the most of my vacation (oh, yes, it's a vacation, probably one of the best EVER!), so if you don't see me every day, don't worry! We'll be back to regular programming after next weekend.

Now that's what I call a vacation! Enjoy!

Love the two shades of pink on the flower, and the sentiment is perfect in grey.

Beautiful card Ardyth - your sister will love it!

Enjoy your 'vacation'! We had company for the past four days which equaled zero craft room time! Likely the same for the next two weeks as well, so my apologies for missing your posts :)

It's good to take a break now and then, so enjoy!
You're sister will love the card, I'm sure. It's beautiful, and even though I'm not big on pink, I love that tone on tone look.
