CTS#86 (edit to add) and ....Happy Birthday, Geri!


Hi there!





Taking part in the sketch challenge over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog.
This is the sketch:







and the card I've made:







For my card I've stamped the daisy by Verve and coloured it with Tangerine and Lemon Yellow Emboss Dual Pens by Tsukineko.  I gave it some shine with Anita's 3D Clear Gloss by Docrafts.
The leaf stamp and die are from the 'Turning a new Leaf' set by Papertrey Ink.
The borderpunch is one by American Crafts.
Added washi tape and a twine bow to finish it off.
Afrikaans sentiment saying:' Congratulations'.


I really do like how this card turned out.



EDIT
Oops, I have to edit this post to add the following  (can't believe I forgot the most important part of the post)!!
I saw on Darnell's blog yesterday, that Geri from Manitoba Stamper had her birthday on Sunday and I made this card to wish Geri a very happy belated birthday!!!  Geri, I hope that you had a lovely day and that the coming year will be filled with all things that make you happy!!!  May you have lots of time to be creative and make stunning cards as you always do!! 
If you haven't met Geri yet, hop on over to Manitoba Stamper and have a look at the lovely cards she makes and enjoy Geri's talent for writing the sweetest poems!!!
Thanks for visiting my blog so often and always leaving such lovely comments, Geri!!! 





I'll love you and leave you with that!!

Thanks for the visit!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards.
Petra

Once again, you've managed to turn this sketch into your own beauty gallery. Love the bright gleaming orange pop of the flower against that black trim and the soft lavender card base. Love the surprise little bow you've tucked under that gleaming flower. Pretty card, as always, Miss Petra. TFS & Hugs
