Hey everyone! Today a bunch of us are celebrating a wonderful blogger friend's birthday. Today is Sandie's (of London Days) birthday! Yay! A very Happy Birthday to you, Sandie! I hope you have as fabulous a day as you are!
There's a linky over at Kylie's blog, Kylie is Addicted to Stamps where you can link up a birthday card for Sandie and join us in the celebration. Here's my card that I made...
I decided to play with one of my new stencils and the ombré technique. I took my stencil (Nestled Circles by ARTplorations) and masked off a section of my card. Then I sponged on Teal Zeal (Memento) and Sea Glass (SSS) ink to create a ombré effect. Once I removed the mask, I attached a trimmed piece of gold glitter tape to one side of the stenciled area. Using my Spectrum Noir markers I coloured some foam dimensional letter stickers (Thickers) in an ombré effect as well. I attached them to the card and then stamped and embossed in gold the birthday sentiment. It's graphic and clean and simple. Just the kind of card that Sandie would like. :-)
Hope to see you join in on the fun and wish the fantastic Sandie a Happy Birthday!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
I'm sure Sandie won't mind me linking up to a few challenges (she's awesome like that):
Addicted to Stamps and More - CAS
Seize the Birthday - anything goes birthday, optional topping of "using the negative" of a die cut. I didn't use the topping.
