Happy Birthday, Darnell

This is my second post today.  Scroll down for my beachy card.

I spent some time today making a birthday card for Darnell.  Darnell makes our little corner of the internet special with her generosity of time and the lovely comments she leaves so very often.  And let's not forget her blog posts - so hilarious and she offers up the most gorgeous cards.  So I made this card with Darnell in mind.  I kept it CAS because that's how she rolls.

It's only fitting that I used NBUS for this card - a new PTI set called Bigger Blooms.  I just love the font on the sentiments in this set.

I die cut and stamped various images using several different ink colors, then arranged them on the card base.  Once they were all stuck down, I went around with the little dot stamp then finished off with some rhinestones.

Each of the flowers and leaves were colored with Wink of Stella.  As always, it's hard to get a good photo so this is the best I could do.

I was inspired by the sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you had a wonderful birthday, Darnell.  Hugs!

Karren, this is gorgeous! I knew the minute I saw it that our Miss D. would fall madly in love with it. I'm a bit behind in commenting on the linky party due to a run of migraines, but wanted to let you know that this is gorgeous. Thanks for helping us celebrate our dear friend, Darnell! Bev
