Hi and welcome to an excited day!  We are celebration Christy from ChristyGetsCrafty as she has surpassed 10 K subscribers on her Youtube channel!  She has asked a few of us to help her celebrate this wonderful milestone, and I am so happy to be apart of this celebration today!

Christy asked us to create a celebratory card, so I did just that, and I used a lot of Lawn Fawn products as she loves Lawn Fawn as well as one other stamp set from WPlus9 whom she also loves!

I created my own custom background with the "Oh Happy Day" sentiment and stamped that onto a piece of Fog card stock from Simon Says Stamp using the Manatee ink from Lawn Fawn.  I decided I wanted to cut a circle element from my panel, so I also took a piece of Peacock card stock from Lawn Fawn and created a framed panel to allow my Fog panel to stand out more.

I stamped out one of my favorite bird images from Lawn Fawn, and did some very simple coloring with a few Copic markers, and then die cut him out using the coordinating die.  I also used the Scripty Congrats Die from Lawn Fawn and used the same Peacock card stock and well as a piece of black card stock as I will adhere both of these die cuts together, and the black with create a drop shadow effect.  I did add some shimmer to the die cuts before adhering them together as that was easier.

Then I just put all of my elements together onto my white card base which is an A2 size card - 4.25 x 5.5

I am the last stop on today's hop, so be sure to find out more details about the hop, including the sponsors and prizes up for grabs, be sure to head over to Christy's blog!!
