Happy Birthday To You, Girlfriend!!!!!


Whoohoo!!! Guess who is having a birthday party today....my friend Michelle Rodgers, owner of Stamper's Dream!!!!!! Michelle's fabulous Dream Team is having a cyber birthday party today and they invited me to come and celebrate with them!!! Be sure to check out their blogs to see the cards they made for Michelle!!!

Michelle, you are just the sweetest friend and I hope you have the best birthday evah!!!

I made this birthday card for Michelle using the adorable bunny image from Penny Black's Garden Friends set. The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with copics. I used a gel pen to add a dot of highlight to the cheeks and the image was cutout with oval Nesties. The crocheted flower was given to my by Broni Holcombe and a Martha Stewart Punch was used for the leaves.



The pink background paper is from Stampin Up and the green paper is called Just Chillin by Making Memories from Stamper's Dream.

I did a little sewing around the background layers and the ribbon and Candy Dots finish it off.


Thanks for the invite, Tosh...I wouldn't have missed this party for the world!!!



Hugs to you Birthday Girl!!!
