Happy Birthday, Ardyth!

Today I'm joining a ton of well wishers in a SURPRISE birthday party
for the Queen of CAS: Ardyth Percy-Robb.

Darnell Knauss asked us to create a birthday card, and to CASE one of Ardyth's cards,
if we could. I went through her blog several times over, and it's not easy to create
an Ardyth card but I think I nailed it, thanks to color blocking.

Here is Ardyth's card that I chose to CASE. And here's my card.

I chose Ardyth's "personal preference" size of a 4.25" square
and masked the stripes and sponged them
in three colors of Distress and Shadow inks.

I was stumped with the sentiment as I didn't have a simple HAPPY BIRTHDAY
in the perfect font or size to fit each row of color.
So this is the best I could do, but I think Ardyth would approve.

If you'd like to join in and wish Ardyth a Happy Birthday, link your
birthday card here at Darnell's blog.

Happy Birthday, Ardyth! Enjoy your day and have a fabulous year!
