Let's Celebrate Dana!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Today, quite a few of us are having a blog hop in honor of our friend Dana's Birthday!! Her BFF (and my dear sweet friend) Karen organized this hop (my Birthday is December 27 Saucy...hint hint! *lol*) to celebrate! I got to meet Dana in person this October when her and Karen came to Long Island. We had SO much fun...I can't remember when I last laughed so hard!

Did you make your way here by way of my sweet friend Joanne's Blog? If so, perfect! If not, please head on over to Karen's Blog to start the hop from the beginning!

My most recent My Favorite Things ordered arrived and of course, I HAD to order the new a la modes! I just ADORE them!! For Dana's card today I used the DARLING a la modes Cheers! I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X Press It Blending Card and colored her with Copic Markers. I then gave her dress, and her glass of champers, some sparkle with some crystal gliter. I cut out the panel so that her glass was "out of the box".

I embossed the background panel with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder and the patterned paper is Tickled Pink from My Minds Eye. I added a black felt rose that I created with the Die-Namics Rolled Rose Die, and added a pearl in the center (which I have just realized is totally covered by my watermark!).

I sewed each layer on my sewing machine and the sentiment, "Let's Celebrate", also from a la modes Cheers, was cut out using the Sentiment Flag Die from Lil' Inker. I finished this one off with three black pearls on the patterned paper panel, in varying sizes from large to small.

I used this week's Sketch Challenge on SCS for my card, SC311.

Dana, I hope you have a WONDERFUL Birthday filled with love and laughter!!! Enjoy your day girlie...yeah, uh huh!!
