TIME OUT - Happy Birthday Sandie!

We are having a special challenge over at Time Out to celebrate the birthday of one of the most wonderful people in blogland, Sandie Munro. Since the challenge is in honour of Sandie, we are asking you to come up with cards that are very CAS (Sandie's style) with the colour purple as an optional twist (her favourite colour). It is going to be a lot of fun - and did I mention that it is a surprise for her!

I love Sandie's style - she keeps her designs so crisp so I really wanted to try a card in her style - I'm not quite sure I got is the card: 

I used Clearly Besotted's Flight of Fancy (now discontinued but a mini version is still available). I stamped the butterflies in two shades of purple pigment , and I added some Stampendous Kaleidoscope embossing powder while the ink was still wet. This powder is really amazing - you don't see it until it hits the light - and then it is so glittery. I stamped the greeting from the same set and then I ran the card through the Big Shot with a PTI texture plate (I know Sandie loves this one too!).

So please join us in celebrating a wonderful card maker and amazing person at Time Out!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Jill, thank you for your lovely comments and you sure hit the CAS style perfectly and I am so touched you used my fav EF!!

  2. These two tone butterflies are gorgeous, Jill ... so striking against the crisp white texture-y background ... you captured Sandie's style beautifully! Hugs, Anita :)

  3. Great design and think a card totally in the CAS-style that Sandie loves! Hope you are having a good week! Hugs, Gerrina
