Sandies Birthday Celebration!!!!

Its a very big day for someone near and dear to us at the TIME OUT challenge. Today is Sandie's 50th birthday. Happy Birthday Sandie!!!!!! We decided to do a bit of sneaking behind her back and organised a special challenge in her honour!! The theme for this challenge is:



                                CAS with the optional twist of 'purple'


As we all know Sandie's card making style is definitely CAS and her favourite colour is purple, so it seemed like the perfect theme to honour her!!


You will have two weeks to join in and wish Sandie a happy birthday and you even have the chance to win a $25 voucher to Simon Says Stamp!!




For my card I definitely went with the twist option and kept it as clean and simple as possible:


I die-cut a circle from some scrap CS, put it in place and used my mini-blending tool with some 'Seedless Preserves' Distress Ink. On another piece of white CS I blended some more of the same ink and die-cut the butterfly from it. After stamping and heat embossing the butterfly in white on some vellum, I fussy cut it out and glued just the middle of the butterfly to the solid purple one. This was then popped up on foam tape in the middle of the circle and the sentiment stamped in black. 

The circle die is from Couture Creations. The Butterfly stamp and matching die are from Hero Arts, as well as the sentiment.

I really hope you like this Sandie and that you have a wonderful day with your friends and family!!

I have four challenges I would like to enter:

A Blog Named Hero - May Challenge


Seize the Birthday Challenge


Stamplorations - May CAS Challenge


A2Z Scrapbooking - May Challenge  (Clean and Simple)


 As I mentioned you have two weeks to add your cards to the Sandies 50th Birthday Challenge. I can't to see all your projects in the Gallery, it's really going to make Sandie so happy!!

Take care
Shona
