Happy Birthday Tracey!


Today is Tracey McNeeley's birthday, and Joyce of Cards-by-the-sea has organised a birthday linky party, so here's a card from me to wish you happy birthday, Tracey, and to thank you for your many kind words on your visits to my blog.

As usual, I've combined a few challenges:

CASology, where the cue word is black,


Less is More, where the challenge is a dark background with a splash of colour,


And Paper Smooches SPARKS, where there is a picture challenge.


Can't see the Paper Smooches connection?  Purple, green and everything in between.  Sequins for water droplets.  Paper Smooches stamps (To, You, snipped from Sentiment Sampler and Simply Said and embossed with metallic purple powder).  The word dies (Memory Box) were cut from a leftover piece of Creative Chemistry 102 homework - alcohol inks.

Pop over to Joyce's blog to see the ever-growing gallery of birthday cards.
