A Birthday Blog Hop

If you are looking for the Faber Castell Giveaway click here...there are just 2 more days left!


It's Michele's (owner of CAS-ual Fridays challenge blog  and stamps ) birthday and  it was only natural for us Girl friday's  to have a blog hop wishing her the very best!
............. you should have come here from Leigh Ann's blog...

 I wanted to create something special for Michele and I hope my card shows it!.






 I wanted to create something special for Michele and I hope my card shows it!.

I tried a new technique shared by Jennifer Mcguire, where we iron off the embossing powder to leave white highlights on the paper, a very interesting effect!. The stamping, masking  and embossing took me quite a bit of time(1 hour! ), but then the coloring was a breeze and I used traditional watercolors , since it's always on my desk and also since I have no distress markers!

Also, to add a bit of dimension to the card, I colored and fussy cut some extra leaves and adhered it.


 Stamps- Jane's Doodles, Papertrey Ink.

Wish you the very best Michele, and hope you have wonderful year ahead!

Here is the  blog hop list



...your next stop on the hop would be Alice's blog...

 The Ink Squad girls from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps are also hosting a blog hop for Michele!
