Happy Birthday Ardyth!!

I'm sure all of you know Ardyth from MASKerade.  If you don't, you need to stop reading now and head over there.  Ardyth has an incredible card style.  She can take one stripe and one sentiment and do amazing things - if you don't believe - check it out.   Actually, she doesn't even need a stripe - just hand her a sentiment - see the bottom card here.

It is Ardyth's birthday today and the equally wonderful Darnell has organized a little card party.

My card is definitely inspired by Ardyth.  First, I had to use the "incredible".  She made this card on Saturday and I was so impressed that I had the stamp set by Monday.  Then I backed the letters with a solid color as she often does with letters and she also did with this amazing snowflake.

Thanks for all of your inspiration Ardyth and have a very happy birthday!

incredible happy birthday
