Happy Birthday Carol!


Today is Carol Mayne's birthday!

Our happy-dancin' friend Bev is hosting a little birthday party for Carol today. Since Carol is experiencing wintry weather in her part of Canada, Bev suggested that we go with a tropical theme for our cards.

I tried to create a beachy feeling by using the colours of sand, water, sky and sun. And one, single, solitary Simon Says Stamp sentiment stamp.

Happy Birthday, Carol - I hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy all the warm cards and wishes coming your way!

Ardyth: WOW!! Gorgeous card, absolutely gorgeous! I am beyond touched, beyond ecstatic, beyond honored that you've created this especially for me. And yes: those colours have me feeling much, much warmer that I have in quite a while! Thank you x 100000 for being part of Bev's party! You've added sparkle to my day, more than you can possibly know! Luckiest person on earth right now: ME (waving hand wildly)! WOW - again!! Consider your card treasured! Hugs~c

What a fabulous and happy card, and your stamping is just perfect. Very cool effect with the yellow and green. I'm trying to figure out how you got everything lined up so well.

Lindsey said...

LOVE this card! What a great interpretation of tropical. :)

Gabby said...

Great-looking b.d. card, Ardyth! I love the "scoped" words. I sure wish I could find a detailed tutorial on how to create a focal of words that line up as perfectly as yours. I know there must be a way but since I've had successive failures, I don't even try anymore. Hee! :)

Kylie said...

Wow, this is lovely. I love the design and those colours are perfect!

That Circle was doing funny things with my eyes - It really looks 3D on my screen! Wish I knew what made the difference! Maybe the light angle? Anyway - it is such a fun card! I like it very much!

Geri said...

Yes, classic Ardyth! 'Brilliant' (as in sun) and 'warm' (as in tropical waters) and relaxing (as in beach chair on a sandy beach). Makes me want to whip up a nice Chi-chi, stand in front of the infra-red heater and pretend that I'm there!
