Time Out

Morning all. 
Today is a bit different, as I am celebrating the birthday of a fabulous crafter:-
 Nonni of Runaway Cards.
Sandie of London Days is hosting a linky Birthday Party for her.

Happy Birthday Nonni!

Here is my birthday card for her.

I have made it with reference to the challenge at Nonni's Challenge Blog Time Out

Where it is 

Challenge #12 CASE With Your Own Twist

This the card by Anita that I cased.

And the latest challenges at;-
Simply Create Too - Monochrome.
Addicted to CAS - Geometric
I used Anita's ideas of heat embossed geometric panel, water colour, dew drops, colours and layered sentiment.
My twist was the addition of the butterfly using the same card as the sentiment.
I heat embossed the top panel with a Kaisercraft 'Honeycomb' stamp the used DIs in Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean to colour. The sentiment was cut in two matching colours and white using a Spellbinders Sentiments One die. The butterflies are cut using Memory Box Pippi and Isabella dies in the same card.

OK, the linky over at Sandie's blog is open for awhile so why not join us in celebrating Nonni's birthday.
