Happy birthday, Darnell!!! (RS#121)

Hi everyone!




As most of you probably know by now,  the lovely Darnell of djkardkreations.com celebrated her birthday yesterday!!  I'm sure she had a lovely day and a lovely surprise party!!  I'm a day late with Darnell's card, but the wishes are as sincere as all of those you got yesterday, Darnell!!  I hope that this year is going to be one of your best ones ever!!!  And thank you for always putting a smile on all your blog visitors' faces, Darnell - you light up even the worst day, with your lovely sense of humour!!

For Darnell's card I followed the current sketch over at the Retrosketches Blog.






Dp by Teresa Collins.  Dies by Tim Holtz and MFT.  Sentiment stamp by Verve.  Finished it off with some rhinestones.  I think a white bow would have been better, but I couldn't find my white twine so I had to settle for a silver one!!

So that will be it for now!! 

Thanks for visiting!!
Keep well!!
Kind regards
Petra

Wonderful card, Petra! Such a wonderful design and am loving the dp and those chevrons! Darnell is going to love this! I like the silver twine - it compliments the bling in your flower's center perfectly. So glad you could come and celebrate with us! Bev

This is a beautiful, geometric, and layered work of art, Petra! Your cards require the viewer to linger and savor all the details and what a joy that is!

Thank you so much for making me feel very special by dedicating a post just to my birthday and linking your card in my surprise party at Ardyth's!!

I did have a wonderful birthday, followed by more parties the next day and then the 4th of July and now a weekend of even more festivities! I sure knew how to pick a good time to be born when it comes to celebrating!! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend, too, and a great week ahead!! Hugs, Darnell

Petra, just perfect to celebrate our Special Darnell's bday. Love the bold graphics (Darnell is bold!) love the lady-like pink (D is ladylike) - the stunning flower (she likes flowers too) and absolutely love the sense of fun this delightful card invokes. (yep, she's fun too!) Great job, and TFS - Hugs.
