Happy birthday to my friend and fellow Hoosier, Jeanne! Several of Jeanne's blogging buddies have come together to surprise her with a hop to celebrate her special day. I've been fortunate to design alongside Jeanne at CASE Study and in the 12 Kits group, and she is one of the sweetest ladies I know in the blogosphere.
If you haven't visited Jeanne's blog, A Kept Life, you are in for a real treat. Jeanne's creations are always beautifully designed with perfectly mixed patterned papers, fabulous choice of colors, and lovely, feminine details like bows, lace, and doilies.
For Jeanne's card, I tried to use some pretty, girly papers and evoke a celebratory feel. I used Mama Elephant's Soiree to stamp banners on a powder blue panel, piecing one of the banners with paper from American Crafts.
The sentiments were heat embossed in white, and I added clear star gems and yellow baker's twine for embellishment.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Spring Rain), WPlus9 (White)
Patterned paper: American Crafts (My Girl)
Stamps: Mama Elephant (Soiree)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Marina Mist), Versamark
Other: The Twinery (baker's twine), Michaels (star rhinestones)
Hop along to the other stops on this birthday hop, then be sure to wish Jeanne a very happy birthday!
