HaPpY BiRtHdAy WeNDy!

I just love funky upper and lower case lettering...yeah, I don't know why, just think it looks funky and fun!

Today we are celebrating Wendy's birthday - Wendy is the owner and illustrator of Repeat Impressions and she's turning 21 today!  She used to be a brunette, but when she heard blondes have more fun...well, the picture explains the rest!  :D

HaPpY BiRThDay WeNDy -
hope your day is FaNtaStiC!!

OK, before going further - raise your hand if you know what type of image I used for Wendy's birthday card?  K.....waiting.....still waiting....did you guess right?  Hmph; am I THAT predictable?  :D

I can't help it; Wendy has the most amazing floral images - love, love, love them.  Bet I've never mentioned THAT before now have I?

For Wendy's card I used the Tulip Bouquet and some super fun spring-y paper from Basic Grey, added a bit of chocolate and kraft and really, you just can't go wrong.  I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #109.  The white ruffle-y ribbon is from Tim Holtz, it actually has elastic down the middle - so cool; then I topped it with PTI's Berry Sorbet Saddle Stitch ribbon.  The front just looked a bit empty to me, so I created a flower from a paperback book using PTI's floral dies.  I edged it with Berry Sorbet and added a brad to the center.  Finished the main image off with dimensional pearls.

Be sure to check out what the other Rock Stars have created for Wendy's birthday:

Thanks for all you do for us Wendy; you are so special!  Happy, happy birthday!!

And thanks for stopping by; have a great Thursday!  Hugs, ~M.
