Happy Birthday Danielle!

Welcome to another Paper Pretties Blog Hop! I love these things and today is a Birthday Celebration! That's right! Our very own Danielle celebrates her birthday today! Woo hoo! The party started over at Jodi's blog so if you haven't been there yet, be sure to hop on over so you don't miss anything! Here is the full run down of today's hop, so you can find your way:


For today's Birthday card we also had to incorporate Jackie's Paper Pretties Design Team Challenge from two weeks ago and make that card into a birthday card for our wonderful Danielle! Jackie challenged the Pretties Girl's to create a card using the colors Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede, simple enough! Then I decided since Danielle released her very first stamp set I just had to use that set for her birthday card! I pulled out her stamp set Home Sweet Home, the first in I hope many stamp sets coming our way from Fat Cat Designs! I picked my favorite home form the set, the apartment building. I don't know what it is about this image, but whenever I reach for this set this is the image I want to always use, I have to behave sometimes and pick another one so the other stamps don't get too lonely. I only did a bit of coloring on this image, I really wanted to home to pop off the card, I also did something a bit different with this card, I cut out a rectangle to place the main image on, and within that shape I used the same Nestability to cut a hole, if you look to the left of the main image, there is exposed stripped paper behind the pop up image. Just trying some new things to see what works and what doesn't work. Hope this one worked out!I hope you liked today's card! A very Happy Birthday to Danielle, be sure to make your way all the way through the hop so that you can wish Danielle a wonderful day! Now make your way over to Jessica's blog to see what she brought to the party! Have a great day all!
