POOTLES BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP




 Sam Hammond, who is my upline - runs a Birthday Blog Hop on her Pootles page - its a great chance to see some lovely birthday cards and an excuse to hop around the blogs!




My card for the hop is a take on the Squashed Card I did the other day - this one though is an 8" x 8" and I've done it as a birthday card.

I've used the Watercolor Wings stamp set and some of the sentiments from Pretty Kitty.  The Designer Series Papers have come from Delightful Daisy and Coffee Break - my two favourite papers in the new catalogue.  The cardstock for the card is Tangerine Tango which was a 12" x 12" sheet of cardstock.

I kept the larger butterfly simple using the framelits to cut out the image out of Wisteria Wonder and then simply stamped all three stamps in Elegant Eggplant.  You have to forgive my ink for looking slightly faded but my ink stamp is from 2007 and has NOT been re-inked - how's that for value for money!   Some Wink of Stella on the butterfly and basic rhinestones add some sparkle on the outside, and Dazzling Diamonds add some sparkle to the butterflies on the inside.  The gorgeous ribbon is also new - and is Stitched Edge ribbon in Rich Razzleberry.

I hope you pop along to everyone else in the hop and see what they have come up with.
