Kelly Marie's Birthday Party Blog Hop!!

Surprise!!!  Happy Birthday Kelly Marie!!

Today - we are celebrating Kelly Marie's birthday - I am so delighted and honored to be apart of this wonderful group to help celebrate such a happy day!!!!  You should have reached me by the way of the awesome and super sweet Lenny!!



Kelly Marie - here is my card for you!  I sure hope you like it!! 


It seems all the cards I've been making lately, I have to incorporate this awesome teal blue color!!  I am obsessed!  I believe one of the prettiest color combos is this blue and red together!  I started out by die cutting the right side edge of the card base with the new Simon Says Stamp A2 Card Curved Edge Die, and also did the same with the pattern paper from the awesome new "Into The Woods" collection from LF.  I then die cut some stars in my pattern paper using the LF "Star Stackables Dies".  Then, I wanted to add some "glam" to the card ( after all - it is a birthday card!!) - and thought adding gold embossing would be the perfect touch - so I stamped the "bursts" images from the "Happy 4th" set using Versa Mark Ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder.  I did the same with the "Happy Birthday" greeting from "So Much To Say".  I added some cute red star washi tape towards the bottom of the card.  I love this washi tape because the stars are transparent and you can see the pattern paper through it.
To add dimension to the card - I popped up the middle star die cut, and then I added some wood veneer stars - one in the middle of my cluster of stars and then in the middle of the "bursts".  I heated embossed one of the stars in gold - and then added some Christmas Red Stickles to the other three stars to round out the red in the color.

Next up to wish you a Happy Birthday Kelly Marie is super sweet and talented Tracy ( another teamie from the Lawnscaping FB Inspiration Team) with her awesome creation!!  If you get lost along the way - you can just head back to the beginning over at Tiffany's blog, and it will get you going in the right direction again.

Kelly Marie - I hope this blog hop puts a huge smile on your face!  You do so much for so many!  You deserve such a happy day - YOUR day!!  Happy, Happy Birthday!!!
