Happy birthday, Sharon!!! (CTS#87, TYI#3)


Hi everyone



Just a quick post before I go to bed!!!


Firstly I want to congratulate my dear friend, Sharon Keanly on her birthday she had on Saturday.  I really feel terrible for being late with this card, Sharon!!  I remembered that Sharon has her birthday in August, but I couldn't remember the day - thought it was somewhere in the middle of the month and then found out that it was yesterday!!  So Sharon, I hope that you had a very lovely day and that the coming year will be one full of joy and happiness!!   
Sharon is a very talented cardmaker who makes the most beautiful feminine and girly cards!!  You can visit her blog here to have a look at her beautiful work. 
For Sharon's card I've used the combined challenge for the week at CAS(E) this Sketch and Tag You're it.


The sketch:
 
 
 
and the card I've made for Sharon:

 
 



Dp by Prima Marketing and the rose and leaf stamps and dies from the 'Life is sweet' set by PTI.
Rose and leaves stamped with Distress Inks (Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Bundled Sage).
The rose is on foam tape.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'. 
Sentiment heat embossed on a vellum overlay on the tag.
Rounded it off with a twine bow and rhinestones.



Next year I will be on time with your card, Sharon - will definitely not forget the date again!!


OK, off to bed I am!!

Thanks for visiting and have a super week!!!

Keep well!!
Kind regards
Petra
