Happy Birthday Ardyth!

Hello Everyone

Today is a very special day as it's Ardyth's birthday and my great blogging buddy Darnell (or Dippy as I call her.......!) has arranged a virtual blog hop in celebration.  Please pop on over to her blog to see all the wonderful creations our blogging community have made for Ardyth.

I took a sheet of A4 cream linen card and scored to make an A5 card blank.  I then used my Spellbinders Marvellous Squares dies for the centerpiece and sponged every other one with DI's.  I layered up the die cuts and used the waste from one of them for the corners.  The flowers and pins are from my stash.  The sentiment is from my Clearly Besotted Happy Days set.

So I wish you a very, very happy birthday Ardyth and I hope you like Darnell's surprise!

Thanks for dropping by and don't forget to pop on over to Darnell's blog to see the cards.  If you want to join in wishing Ardyth a Happy Birthday then use the "Inlinx" gadget to link up to your blog.
