Happy Birthday To Me and a TANDEM CHALLENGE #1 with FLO

Today is my Birthday (one more year plus :) )..Happy Birthday to Me (LOL)....
and I still have  My Birthday Linky can click here or at the picture to go to the main post :) 
I would be so happy if you like to join with me :)


I was asking Flo at Flos Habseligkeiten do you like to do a challenge with me??she said "yes why not?" (ok warum  nicht :) )...then we will choose one theme and we make a similar card with that theme...this time is my idea...make a Purple card, with tile technique, and sentiment HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

I made this for last two days...

Card Number 1:

But I think this is not so good enough for the challenge with Flo :((( (sad) but I did not throw it away I sent to my friend who has a birthday mom tomorrow :) I think he likes it :) here is the same card but the Purple color always change if you change the angle of the photo hmmm... :)

Then I change my mind and made this card...I feel more comfortable or feel better with the last result of my card.

Card Number 2:

I change the image with butterfly from Hero Arts.

I want that whole card look purple also I choose the sentiment and stamped it with ranger distress ink in purple. The flower and the DIE CUT in the middle of my card are from Billie A. in the USA, again many thanks Billie for sending me those lovely scrap goodies.

 I sponged the background and gave a bit water on it..

I think I love the tile technique much also you will see it more on my blog :) ( please dont feel bored :))
