Happy Birthday, Ardyth

Today is Ardyth's birthday, and Darnell has been busy behind the scenes organising a secret birthday bash.

How to describe Ardyth?  Generous, funny, encouraging, amazingly talented (there is no end to her wizardry with primary colour and shape), precise, OCD (her words, not mine ;D).  You can spot an Ardyth card a mile off, with its clean, graphic lines, bold colours and bold fonts.  Then occasionally she throws in something unexpected and you wonder if you're on the right blog.

Darnell suggested we case one of Ardyth's card as a tribute for her birthday, so I chose one of her "alternative" cards, which is still very Ardyth:

I used a Magenta stamp (Canadian, very apt), and a similar colour scheme, and of course some of those trademark stickles.

Come and join the birthday bash by linking a card up to Darnell's post.

You can also get a second shot at casing one of Ardyth's cards as she's hosting this week's One Layer Wednesday, the theme of which is to case one of her cards or make one based on her many and varied interests (listed in the post).  Double whammy!

Happy Birthday, Ardyth!  I hope you have a fabulous day:)

  3. This is gorgeous Shirley (and I didn't know that Magenta is Canadian!) Love the rich colours and sparkle (and that's shimmery purple card, right? YUM!) Thank you so much!

  4. Leave it to your wonderful imagination, Shirley, to CASE one of Ardyth's "alternative" cards and do it flawlessly! Your flowers are works of art, truly, and the colors and sparkle are so perfect!

    Thanks so much for joining in the party! Mwah! Darnell

  5. What a perfect Ardyth-CASE, Shirley ... such a stunning card ... love that pearlised base! Anita :)
