Happy Birthday Sharron!


I have a special card today for a special lady and blog friend!  Sharron, the talented designer behind the blog, On Papillon Wings, and a teammate of mine at The 12 Kits of Occasions, is having a birthday today, and several of her friends have come together to help her celebrate with a blog hop.

Since Sharron's birthday is on the first day of autumn, I chose some warm fall colors to create a card just for her.  I used WPlus9's Written On Ribbon and Fresh Cut Florals, adding a stitched border and some glitter accents to the flowers with a Wink of Stella glitter brush.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Oatmeal), Stampin' Up! (Rich Razzleberry)
Stamps:  WPlus9 Design Studio (Fresh Cut Florals, Written on Ribbon)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, More Mustard, So Saffron, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive)
Tools:  WPlus9 Design Studio (ribbon, flower dies), corner rounder
Other:  Zig Wink of Stella clear glitter brush, thread

Sharron, I hope you have a fantastic birthday and enjoy your blog hop!  Here's the full list of designers wishing you well today:


Christina (that's me!)

Stop by and wish Sharron a happy birthday, too!

Happy Fall, everyone!
