A Birthday Blog Hop for Julee


Woo-Hoo!! It's Julee's birthday today, and I am so excited to be a part of this blog hop to wish her the happiest of days. If you've come from Amber's blog, you are on the right track. And if you would like the complete blog hop list, head to the Verve Blog HERE.

Hugs and Happy Birthday Wishes Julee!! I hope you have one of the most fantastic of days today!!


Julee is one of the sweetest most generous people I know, so I knew I wanted to make this card as special as I could with some of my favorite tools and embellishments. I started off with some of my favorite dp this season called Cappella by Basicgrey. I then framed the sentiment, from the Verve set Big Wish, with the Tim Holtz Styled Labels die, and the Sizzix Ornate Labels #6 die, along with the Spellbinders Long Rectangles. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine's Smokey Gray ink.



I added some bling with some Zva Creative Rhinestone Flourishes, and a Prima Rhinestone embellishment. On the right of the card, I added a bow made with Seam Binding Ribbon with a beautiful rose added to the center.


The border was made with an EK Success Punch.

I also decorated the inside using the butterfly from the Verve set Beautiful Kindness and some more Zva Creative Rhinestones..


That's about it for my card. Now check out what Tanya's made for Julee's Birthday.

Stamps: Beautiful Kindness, Big Wish
Paper: Basic Grey, PTI, Suede Brown Dark (Prism)
