Happy Birthday, Sandie!


Today is Sandie's birthday and we're having a surprise party! Nonni is hosting and there's a link up on her blog so that everyone can play along!

One of the things I love about these parties is that they give me a chance to get to know the birthday girl a little better. I was scrolling through London Days (Sandie's Blog) to find a card to CASE for her birthday and had such a hard time choosing! Finally, I came across this one (which is coincidentally for one of Nonni's challenges!):


This is a little less CAS than I normally do, and based on my perusal of Sandie's blog, it's a little less CAS than she does too, but you can't say it isn't fun! I love the coloured stripes and the die cuts in the cut out dots. 

Happy Birthday, Sandie - I hope you have a fabulous day!

Oh I love this! The rainbow striped background, the glittery hearts - just fabulous! And a lovely CASE of Sandie's card too!

LOVE this - yes, not your usual minimalist approach, but fabulous nonetheless! I assume you used patterned paper or did you stamp those stripes?

Great result with a wee wander away from the comfort zone! I really like the swiss cheese layout..especially paired with the striped paper and colors that you chose!
