Happy Birthday Jessica!!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Monday!!

Welcome to a VERY special Birthday Blog Hop!! Today, the Trendsetters are surprising our fearless leader, the wonderful Jessica, with a hop to celebrate her Birthday!! Woot!!!

The first stop on today's hop, and where you (hopefully) came from to get to me, is the fabulous Chris Dark!! If you didn't start there, head on over to her blog to start the hop from the beginning!!

I am SO excited to participate in today's blog hop! Not only is Jessica the owner of There She Goes, an amazing designer and fabulous illustrator, she is also a dear friend and I am SO lucky to have gotten to know her through stamping!!

For my card for Jessica, I started with one of Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenges, SSSC69 and I used one of my all time favorite There She Goes stamp sets, Make A Wish! I stamped and masked the cake and then stamped the cake stand, both with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored the entire image with Copic Markers. I stamped the sentiment, "Happy Birthday" around my image four times, and I separated each sentiment with one of Taylor's Tiny Twinkles.

I also used the Twinkles to adorn the cake! I wanted Jess to have a SUPER sparkly cake on her Birthday!!! The patterned paper is the oh so whimsical Fly A Kite by October Afternoon, and I added three ribbons of Fudge Polytwill to finish it off!!

The next stop on this Birthday Hop is over at the amazing Danielle's Blog!!

Jess, HAPPY BIRTHDAY my sweet friend! I hope today brings you oodles of happiness and that this next year will be your happiest and most successful yet! LOVE ya girlie!!
