Happy Birthday, Emily-Life is a Party!!



Welcome to the Birthday Blog Skip, Hop & Dance sponsored by Stamping Bella where you can start at the beginning if you've just happened upon my blog.
Here's my card to celebrate Emily's birthday who's only turning 37 today! I wanted to create something bright and cheery and this American Crafts metropolitan paper is just that (I think). I followed this week's Mojo Monday #92 sketch and managed to whip this party card up in 30 minutes because I forgot today was the blog hop and just discovered that I was part of it before my morning rush with the kids!


I used nestabilities, embossed a piece of Papertrey raspberry fizz (more on my new Papertrey paper that came in a care-package from Charlene later today) with my cuttlebug, trimmed the scallops from the AC paper and wrapped it with SU ribbon, floss and love! The image is coloured with copics.


Thanks so much for stopping by! Now it's time to hop on over to Megan's blog...
