Surprise! It's Kelly Marie's Birthday Party Blog Hop!



 

Welcome all of you from Kelly Marie's Birthday Party Blog Hop!  If you are following along on the blog hop, you just came from Tiffany's Blog.

I am so excited to be a part of this blog hop.  First, because Kelly is a really good friend of mine. I am so blessed by her friendship...she is so sweet!   Secondly, this is my first blog hop ever!  I was so excited to be invited to participate...I just started this blog in June so this is all still very new to me.

Here is the card I made for Kelly:


For my background papers I decided to go with teal and yellow since I know Kelly likes those colors (and so do I!).  I was inspired by all the chalkboard art I have been seeing on Pinterest, so I combined several different sets to come up with a similar look.  I just rubbed a piece of chalk on the paper to complete.  I had to add some of the new silver sparkle Lawn Trimmings...I love it!

I love the vintage look of galvanized metal so I took some Pumice Stone Distress Ink and rubbed it directly onto white cardstock.  After that, I sprayed it with water mixed with some Perfect Pearls.  I then used the stars included in the Stitched Journaling Die Set to cut out these adorable tiny stars.  It's hard to see in photo, but they really do look like they are made of metal.  I think they add a nice touch!

Happy Birthday, Kelly!!!  Hope you enjoy an amazing day!



Make sure you visit all the blogs in today's hop!  So much inspiration and creativity!  Your next stop on the hop is Laurel's Blog
