Happy Birthday, Sarah!

Hi guys

Today I'd like to say Happy Birthday to my lovely blog friend and teamie at Less is More, Sarah of Sazzle Dazzle Crafts!

Sarah is known to lots of us in craft blogland, currently being on the Design Teams at Less is More, AAA Cards, Addicted to CAS and she also designs for Uniko.  Her cards are stunning, beautifully CAS and she uses such vibrant colours every time.  As well as being super talented she's also one of the sweetest people I've had the pleasure of 'meeting'.  We live at opposite ends of the country but hopefully we'll meet for real one day!

So, here's the card I made for Sarah, I know I can share it as she's already thanked me for it :)

A bit of stamping and masking was involved to create the flowers on a white cardstock panel.  I then used my Derwent Inktense pencils with some water to colour them in.  The sentiment was then stamped and the panel was popped up on 3D foam.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Stampin Up! - Flower Shop; Wplus9 - Strictly Sentiments
  • Ink: Archival - Jet Black
  • Coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils

Challenge entries:

613 Avenue Create - Challenge #135 - Anything goes - optional Happy Birthday
Crazy 4 Challenges - Challenge #297 - Include the word 'Happy'
Creative Inspirations - Challenge #323 - Flowers

So, Happy Birthday, Sarah.  I hope you have a fabulous day! xx
