Happy Birthday Carol Blog Hop

Hiya!!

Long time no see!! How is everyone doing!?!? The semester is finally over and the first thing i did was get in the craft room and made a card for a super sweet and talented lady!! Today a few girls are doing a special blog hop for Carol!!! Happy Birthday Carol!!! Carol is the sweetest lady! She not only makes lovely cards, but also leaves lots of love all over blogland!  So this little blog hop is for you Carol!

I made a girly birthday card today! I didn;t really start with a plan, but i loved how it all came together!!

I first stamped several presents on watercolor paper and colored them with some distress markers. I don;t have a great selection of pinks, so they are a little pink/purple! I also stamped a banner and sentiment, then colored it with markers. Next i cut them all out.


For the background i colored a solid rectangle with the distress markers. You get a kind of sketchy look with them! Next i found a kraft circle on my desk added that and some ribbon!

Thanks for stopping by!!
