Birthday Blog Hop

We wanted to wish
Darlene a  very HAPPBIRTHDAY today in a special way! 
Hope you will join in the fun and get some amazing birthday card ideas along the way.  
We also hope you will stop over to Darlene's blog and wish her a 
Happy Birthday !
Let the party begin!!!!

Darlene....our birthday girl! 
Darlene is one of my best friends and since she only lives a half hour away from me, we get together whenever possible to create and craft. I love picking her brain for ideas. She is such an inspiration and so talented. So before I share my creation with you I want to say "Happy Birthday Dar!"

Now here's my card... 

For the base I used Stampin' Up's "Perfect Plum" card stock and embossed it with a vine embossing folder from Darice. Next I cut a panel from SU's "Pale Plum" and one from "Perfect Plum"  to mat my image. This image and sentiment were printed from My Craft Studio's "Tatty Twinkles" cd.  The sentiment panel was punched from white card stock with a mat of "Perfect Plum" using my oval punches. The beautiful lavender and white dotted ribbon was purchased from Pat Catan's and has been waiting for on my ribbon shelf for just the right project. I think this the perfect addition to my card.

So Darlene, are you feeling the love from your 'sistah's"? Hope your birthday turns out to be as wonderful as you are.

Your  next stop is Vickie....or you can start all over!!! And don't forget to stop by Dar's blog and leave a little birthday love.

Have a beautiful day!
