Happy Birthday Michelle!!

It's Michelle's Birthday today...and the Dream Team wants to wish her the grandest of birthdays!! Check out all the girls blogs to see what Birthday card they came up with to honor her today!! If you have a moment, head on over to the Stamper's Dream Blog and wish Michelle a happy birthday!!

Michelle LOVES Northwoods stamps, and she's big on watercoloring. So I thought I would watercolor this beautiful Closed Wing Swallowtail Butterfly/Sunflower image. This time I used my Watercolor Crayons (SU!). I adore the Octagon Nestabilities Shape, so I framed the image with it. I then sewed Ledger dp (Making Memories), to Kraft cs (Prism), and used Neenah Natural White as my card Base.

I love flourishes, and I thought these Wood Flourishes by Kaisercraft added just the right country feel. Finally, I did what I almost always do....I ink distressed. I just can't help myself sometimes. This time I used Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress Ink)

That's it. To see what the rest of the team has come up with, click on the following names: Becca, Cammie, Charmaine, Denise, Kim, Laurie
