Christy's Birthday Blog Hop Sponsored by The Stamping Boutique

Over at The Stamping Boutique we are celebrating our fabulous DT Leader Christy's Birthday!  To do that  we are having a Blog Hop to celebrate with cards that we have made to send to Christy.  If you arrived here from Colette's blog you are on the right track!!  If not head over to the beginning of the hop which is Tracey's (our amazing TSB artist and designer of all TSB images).  Here is my card using The Stamping Boutique image "Audrey with Cupcake".

I paired my copic coloured image with design paper from Bo Bunny called "Alissa Look at Me".  I just loved the pinks and blues & as soon as I saw it I knew I had to get it.  I embossed my pink cardstock with a cuttlebug embossing folder and decided to try something new with this fantastic pink suede ribbon I recently got.  I hand-stitched down the center of the ribbon and then pulled the thread to gather it.  Once gathered I mounted it with scor-tape (I sure hope it's still holding when Christy receives it) and placed it on my card.  I added some pink and blue flowers with little button centres to finish it off.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHRISTY!!  I hope you had a fabulous birthday and enjoyed your birthday blog hop.  Thank you for being such an amazing DT leader!

Your next stop on the hop is Dardi's Blog!  Wait to see what she has in store for you!  Have fun!
