Happy Birthday, Ardyth!


The fantabulous Darnell (of djkardkreations) is hosting a birthday surprise for the equally fantabulous Ardyth (of MASKerade) today!  Darnell will have a linky at the end of this post for anyone who wants to send some birthday love to Ardyth.  If you've never checked out either of these ladies' blogs then you are missing out on amazing cards and lots of laughs. You must go stroll through their creations!  :)  

Since Ardyth is forever turning cool pictures into even cooler cards I decided to use a photo inspiration for my birthday card and went with the latest inspiration picture from Just Us Girls.  How cool is that cake?  Yellow and grey + polka dots + chevrons = serious yumminess!!

Ardyth, I hope that you have a fantastic day and that everyone spoils you rotten!  Big hugs to you!

Way to rock that challenge, Jen, AND make a perfect Ardycard! I'm a huge fan of yellow and gray so this is a keeper for me, too!

Thanks so much for joining in the party! Mwah! Darnell

Perfectly Ardyth-stry. Great colours and those chunky chevrons rock!

Such a fun and vibrant card. It's a great tribute to Ardyth's style.

Awesome card, and very Ardyth-appropriate!

I love it! The colour combo is so cheerful (although grey frosting on a cake...hmmm...that would probably make me do a double-take, lol!)

Yellow is probably my least favorite color, but you have paired it up with these gray shades to result in such elegance. Love this, Jen.
