Celebrate You Today!

Hi everyone!  Happy Thursday!!

I have noticed that I have a HUGE void in my Birthday card stash, so I used this week's There She Goes Challenge, TSG102, Vivacious Vellum, to help me fill that void!!

This challenge is brought to us by our Trendy, Marisa!  She wants us to use vellum on our card in any way!  I am in LOVE with this GORGEOUS CREATION by Lea Lawson, and I've used her layout and the way she used vellum to cover the patterned paper.  LOVE that!

The patterned paper is from the Restoration Collection from Crate Paper and I love this big bold pattern.  I cut my vellum a bit shorter on the sides and stitched it to the patterned paper on my sewing machine.

The sentiment, "Celebrate You Today" is from Sentimental Birthday from There She Goes, and I stamped it and then cut it out with Labels 9 Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Memento Cantaloupe and Memento Tangelo to make it pop.

I added a double Prima fabric flower and attached a crystal bauble on top.  I also added some rhinestone swirls for a sparkly look.  LOVE me some bling!!

We would love you to play along!  Here are the details!!
