CASE Study this week is celebrating their 2nd anniversary. We get to enter a card in our "signature style". Mmmm, I think this card uses my signature style. I usually use more white, but imagine the pale plum is white, and I think it is "me".
This week it is my aunty's 80th birthday. That's quite a milestone. We will be celebrating next week-end. She's grumbling about how big the party is getting, but I think she is in her element - all this attention from her very large, extended family!
I spent a lot of time with my aunty while I was growing up. She was living on a pineapple farm with her husband (my uncle) and her four boys. I learned early how to play rough and tumble with my big boy cousins! :-) Some of my favourite memories involve sitting in the kitchen, having cups of tea, sitting on the wood box in front of the wood-fired stove. They've retired now and moved into town, but I hold fond memories of that farm.
This is the card I came up with. My aunty likes purple, so that set the colour-scheme. The card is 4" x 6", a little different in dimension to my usual 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
I used PTI Lovely Layers, Think Big Favorites #13. Colours are SU! Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Certainly Celery, Old Olive. The dies were PTI Lovely Layers, Block Alpha Numbers, and Spellbinders Nestabilities (circles).
I used the sketch from My Favorite Things.
Thanks for coming to visit!
