Happy Birthday Sandie!

Hi everyone...
... And especially Sandie, who is turning 50 today! Woo hoo! Congratulations my dear friend! We are celebrating Sandie at TIME OUT with an extra challenge, do join us in the fun! You could win a 25$ gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp. All the details here 

In my card I've used my all time favorite Spellbinders embossing folder. I lost it and was spending many lonely months without it... But now I have a new one! :) The butterflies (and sentiment) come from a Hero Arts stamp and die set that I'm trying here for the first time. My die cutting went a bit off but I still think this set is amazing and I hope Sandie won't mind my slight mistake in attaching the die! Sorry hon! It would be lovely with the butterfly right in the middle of the cut, grrr... I had it right in my first attempt but then I wanted to have the butterflies embossed with white and made another version.. And made a mistake with the die. Anyhow, what a great set and I hope Sandie will like her card! She is spending her birthday in the beautiful Budapest with her hubby and I hope she is enjoying her trip.

Now I hope you'll head on over to TIME OUT Challenges and join us in our special birthday challenge for Sandie. The theme is CAS With the Optional Twist of Purple. Happy crafting!

Also... Kylie is having a birthday linky party for Sandie too at her blog here. I'll of course link my card there and you should too! :)

I'd like to join:


  1. I love the embossed background. So beautiful.

  2. I haven't seen this embossing folder before but see why you love it so much. Can't spot the error with the butterfly, sometimes we see the mistakes we've done because we know of them, but others can't spot them. It's a beautiful purple card, perfect for Sandie. I made mine in a hurry, that mean less than an hour, a record for me as I'm a slow card maker, but it had to be quick so I could finish tidying up and get back to entertaining my mil.

  3. So pretty and texture-y, Nonni ... that pop of sunny yellow behind those beautiful butterflies (which look rather perfect to me!) is gorgeous! Hugs, Anita :)

  4. Nonni I can't see any mistake it is wonderful. Am waiting for taxi and will be opening the card when I get home but I can tell you I will love it. And wow to the EF, my absolute fav, love you hon x

  5. What a beautiful design! Love how you've popped out the butterflies and your textured background with the purple tones! :)

  6. Love the dimension you created with the butterflies! A card Sandie will really like! Hugs, Gerrina
