Happy Birthday, Karen!!

It's a weekend of birthdays and today is Karen's! So some of her friends have gotten together to celebrate with a hop and the party starts over at Dana's blog. I was playing with my Silhouette this week and have something special just for Karen.

I created the image first in Illustrator and then converted it to cut. This may give a closer look:
The sentiment is printed on cardstock. I just love this American Crafts paper--it seemed perfect for my friends celebrating birthdays this weekend. I cut three of the gorgeous flowers out and adhered them to the SU melon mambo cardstock before stitching around the edge. I saw the button and half pearls treatment over on Dawn McVey's blog and thought it was perfect for Karen's swirly leafy flourish!

Next stop--Janet. If you didn't start out at Dana's, Karen's hop today goes something like this...

Dana & Leslie
Nancy<<--that's me
Karen the birthday girl :)
That's right...Karen has created something beautiful for herself too.

Have a fabulous day, Karen!
~Nancy
