Happy Birthday Julie!!

Today is a very special day…it’s a very special birthday. Our one and only, completely irreplaceable, unforgettable, head honcho, rock steady, keep us in line, and loves us for who we are, eminent leader…Julie Koerber! Without her there wouldn’t be…well, we wouldn’t be! She is the foundation of our Senior Design Team and the fearless leader that we always can turn to! It’s a blog hop for Julie’s birthday and I have a special birthday card for just for her!
I started by stamping sublte images from Ferns and Fiddles onto Flourishes classic white card stock then stamping Happy Birthday from the Kids Play set. I then die cut using Spellbinders Labels Twenty, which was kept in place while I sponged the panel with Wheat ink from Versa Magic. The patterned paper is MME Six by Six Vanity Fair. I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and a scrap of pp and added them to the sentiment panel. I found the “stick pin” in my stash and found the colors similar and they added a nice little pop.
