Happy Birthday

Good morning early risers.
This is a different sort of post today as we are celebrating the birthday of the lovely Sandie of London Days.
Kylie is hosting a suprise linky party on her blog with one or two friends helping out to spread the news. Sandie does a lot of work behind the scenes at ATSM and always leaves such supportive comments so how could I not join in. 
Here is my card for her and if the Royal Mail have done their job she should have received it by now!

Happy Birthday Sandie!!


Sandie loves CAS so I hope she likes this.

I used a couple of challenges for my inspiration as I had too many ideas floating around my head, again!
I've used this camouflage technique with letters and numbers before, here, here and here, but I went with a tag this time. I stamped the greeting (a freebie on a mag) in black then using the colours from CASual Friday I inked up my STAMPlorations Eclectic Florals and stamped around the greeting. The wispy bits are from the same free set, stems I think!. The tag is from Die'sire and has several layers of the same glued together. I'd no dark twine so I coloured some pale blue with a Copic to match.
OK, why not join in over at Kylie's blog and wish Sandie a very happy birthday.

I'd like to join in at -

  1. I am still say in bed with a cuppa so not sure if Royal Mail has delivered this yet but it is a beauty. I love this texhnique. I am so bad at using tags but I guess I could try this without a tag. I am so pleased you joined my party, means so much xx
