Happy Monday Morning!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!! I know I did!! We did get over another 2 inches of rain but atleast it was more of a thundershower at night and we could enjoy the sun!!!

Today I am so excited to share a sneak peek from Our Daily Bread Designs called "Happy Birthday" to be released on August 1!!! I so love the sentiments and images in this set!!! I decided to use this set for my mom's birthday since she loves flowers and this set is perfect. I used yesterday Fs129 casing Versamom (lori) and cased this card. I kept the pink and the layout but changed the image, some of the layout, the coordinating colors, embellishments, and sentiment. I also incorporated several Dare to be Dirty challenges from last week:

DTGD09DeborahLynneS- Taken with Texture- I used flower soft

DTGD09genie1314- Tag Art- The tags behind the image pull out and say "Birthday Blessings" and "This is the day the Lord hath made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."

DTGD09Krystallee- Creatively Clear- I used clear dew drops

DTGD09blondie090277- Paper tole- I dimensionalized an paper toled my image

DTGD09Becca_stamps- Cut It Out- Becca challenged us to use punches and dies. I used my nesties and EK Success Fleur De Lis punch as well as my Cuttlebug Vintage Corner Die

DTGD09Bevmom- "Sew Unexpected" I sewed the borders of my card.

DTGD09debdeb- Inspired by Music- I was inspired by the song "This is the Day the Lord has made"

DTGD09eggette- Spread your wings- I incorporated a butterfly

DTGD09craftycaro- Anything but average- I made a 6X6 card instead of an A2

DTGD09lauraly- Tie one on- I used ribbon.

The image is gold embossed and colored with copics. It is paper toled and flower soft was added for texture. The dp is Memory Box - Pink Dots. I framed it with White Glitter paper from DCWV and Pretty in Pink CS. The border is created with the Fleur De Lis punch from Ek Success.

The sentiment tags pull out.


Stamps: ODBD- Happy Birthday

paper: Making Memories- Pink Dots, White Glitter Paper, Pretty in Pink

Accessories: Cuttlebug Vintage Corner, Clear Dew Drops, Pink Grossgrain ribbon (1/4 inch), Ek Success Fleur De Lis punch, flowersoft, flowersoft glue, Spellbinders Classic Round Small large Scalloped and Reg. circle dies

Thanks for stopping by. I am free to go visit other blogs today. Woo hoo!! I so enjoy being inspired by others and so appreciate your warm comments here.
