Happy 50th Birthday, Sandie

It's Sandie's 50th birthday today. I've been following Sandie for some time now and I love her very CAS style. She's constantly coming up with new CAS designs and new ways to use her stash. If you don't know Sandie I highly recommend you pay her a visit over at her blog - London Days.

I know Sandie loves purple. Sorry, no purple card from me, I have all my stash tucked away as I'll be hosting a breakfast tomorrow - it's the Norwegian Constitution Day which all Norwegians celebrate in their finest outfits - and my crafting space - which actually is a dining room - needs to be used for that purpose for once.
But I had this Altenew freebie set at hand, got hold on some of the red and green inks, used some already prepared panels, circle die cut and red card base and got to work. The sentiment was also a freebie at some point, and three enamel dots (I know Sandie love those) were added.

I'm linking my card up to the birthday event hosted by Kylie of Kylie is Addicted to Stamps here as well as these challenges:

Card and Scrap - #118 Flowers
Aud Sentiments Challenge - #155 Anything Goes with a sentiment
Outlawz Twisted Thursday - Embossing

Wow Pia, hosting a celebration isn't a walk, you will be so busy!! But you have made however a fab work with the pieces on your hands, infact this card is wonderful!
It will be very appreciated, surely!! These roses are adorable and they pop out soooo well on the striped embossed panel!!! Your stamp layer on layer is perfect!! The circle with the sentiment adds a beautiful dimension and strenghtens the focal point. Love the green dots, too, and the dark red panel on the back!
Pinned! :D

Have a good celebration's breakfast!

A fabulous card Pia, love the vibrant colour of the flowers and the way you've displayed them. I got this freebie set too, but as yet haven't used them, think I need to rectify that.

Sandie will love this even without any purple, Pia! It's so striking and lovely in the bright reds and green and I love that background panel! I hope you had a wonderful celebration breakfast! Happy Norwegian Constitution Day! My foster mother was Norwegian and I still remember how to say thank you in Norwegian! Hugs, Darnell

Wow!! Pia this is gorgeous. I love the vibrant beautiful flowers and they really pop with the white edge.

If I haven't got enough problems, my computer has downloaded Windows 10 today even though I have been clicking to stop it for weeks. I only went to the kitchen and when I came back it had started. Lol!! Trying to find my way round it all.

Imke said...

Lovely card, Pia. I like the embossed background, your stitching and the multi layer stamped flowers and leaves. Very pretty.

Happy Constitution Day, Pia! Did you get all dressed up??? Fun! Glad you had a moment to craft with MIL in town... hope you've had a lovely time, and here's to using your craft space to share a family gathering (then getting your craft stuff back out!) This is a beauty.
