Happy Birthday Ardyth!



Happy Birthday Ardyth!

I have had the pleasure of getting to know you virtually through our common love of cardmaking and blogging but also by both being on the Design Team at CASology! Even better we share the same big 'city' and I am so looking forward to meeting up with you for lunch at Yorkdale this summer. 

Sweet Darnell has organized this birthday treat for you today and has asked that we each CASE one of your fantastic cards for you.  Well how do you CASE an Ardyth card, how do you improve or CASE perfection.  You have such a signature style my friend so I have chosen a card that I love of yours to CASE and I have done this by following your CAS design and your fun Copic technique.  I hope that today is a wonderful day, and I hope that you enjoy all of the cards, love and friendship you are receiving virtually too!


This is the card that I am using for my CASE




Hugs and enjoy your cake!




and here is my card to you!




I am also submitting this card to the Simon Says Anythings Goes Challenge.
