Belated Happy Birthday to Darnell

Happy Birthday to Darnell for yesterday!  Lots of you will have the awesome pleasure of visiting Darnell's fabulous Blog - she is such a lovely lady and friend!  Here is the card I sent which hopefully made it across to Darnell in time for her birthday!

I masked the panel off with tape then applied Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry and Wilted Violet Distess Inks then spritzed with pearl Glimmer Mist.  I then used black Versafine to stamp these fab little images from Dee's Flowers and Frames by Stamplorations. After I removed the masking tape, I stamped the sentiment (I can't remember the make) then added splatters of the watered down Distress Inks and mounted the panel on a purple base card.  I really hope Darnell likes it!  She makes the most awesome cards!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Penny Black and More Challenge - Anything Goes with a Stamp
Stamplorations Third Birthday - Party/Celebration/Birthday inspired by mood board (mine is birthday and I think my flowers and leaves could be sprinkles on the top of the cakes in the picture. - in my head anyway!!! There are splatters in the mood board too!)
Stamplorations Never Ending Challenge - Anything Goes

3rd BIRTHDAY Blog Hop & Linky Party!

This is a bit of a short blog post.  I will try and do another in the next few days.  Sorry I haven't been around much.  In July I have a few things going on, including meeting Darnell on her visit to the UK - that is the absolute highlight for me!  But it all means I have to take things very easy to manage everything so I apologise for my very infrequent visits and posts.  I will do my best though.  I went to the Newbury craft show yesterday with my friend Julie and had a fab time.  I am pretty shattered today so apologise for any mistakes in this post or if it doesn't make sense.  Sorry Darnell it is late!

I am off to bed know so goodnight and take care and thank you for your visit and continued, very valued, support! xxx

Wait! Darnell's bday is the 2nd?! I never knew the actual date but I made a note that it was mid-July, so now I see I'm off by enough that my card will be belated.

I like your CAS card with that extra interesting panel on it. Very nice!

Gosh, I have lost touch of everything and forgotten to send Darnell a card. Will have to email you later to get her addie and send one off quickly.
Love the card you have made for her - a true Darnell type card - so very appropriate for her.
Great to see you blogging, hope all is well at home.
Hugs, Neet xx

It's such a lovely card, Chris. It's simplicity belies the amount of work that I know will have gone into it. I can see that Darnell appreciated that, though. I love how you have blended the colours in the flowery band.
I'm off to visit Darnell's blog now. Jx
