If you're here for Jen's Happy Birthday Blog Hop - You're in the right place!!!!!! WAHOOOO!!! :)
I'm so excited to be a part of Jen's blog hop. I hope many of you know Jen at The Purple Scrapbooker, if not - you really should!! She's so amazingly talented; I'm so honored that she let me be a part of her Birthday Blog Hop! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEN!!!!!!
I hope you are here after visiting Denine at Pumpkin & Spice. If not, that's OK - just make sure you start at the beginning with Jen at The Purple Scrapbooker (you're not going to want to miss anything)!! :)
When Jen asked if I would be a part of her hop, of course I said YES! I also asked her a few questions about her favs (favorite treat, favorite movie, etc). Well, one of her favs is the color purple (of course), but another fav is the movie Steel Magnolias. So to help Jen celebrate her Birthday, I wanted to make this card **I didn't get into town so Jen won't get this card until next wee; sorry Jen!** Yes, the flowers are supposed to be Magnolias. :)
The card fits into a legal size envelop (I think it's around a 9x4). The branch and flowers are from Gypsy Wanderings cut at 2.5. I cut the flowers out twice so that I could layer them. I inked one set of flowers (purple around the sides and yellow in the middle) to give a little bit of color; and what is a flower without a little pearl in the middle?! :) I used an older stamp set for the sentiment and used a MS border punch for the top and bottom of the sentiment. The butterflies are layered stickers; I just wanted to give the card a little more color and a little something else. :) Here's a picture of the flowers. I used homemade pop dots to pop them up a bit and curled the edges of the top layer. I liked the effect. :)
To help Jen celebrate her Birthday I have a small present for one lucky person.
