So Suzy Stamps Stupendous Birthday Blog Hop

Hey everyone - enjoying all the birthday fun?? You should be arriving from Jenny's fun blog, but if you just stumbled in be sure to head on over to the So Suzy Stamps page for the full list of events, bloggers, and confetti!

It turned out that I actually had a few of the very first stamps in my collection to choose from, so I grabbed two of my favorite sentiments - "Happiness is..." and "Sending you an instant hug".

I stamped Happiness is... on a piece of 4.25"x5.5" Neenah Solar White cardstock in that luscious gold Delicata ink and then die cut three butterflies out of the panel. For some texture I ran it through an embossing folder and then made light marks on an A2 card base showing where my butterflies were. I then added some washi tape to the card base thus "coloring in" my butterflies. Some adhesive to hold it down and the second sentiment stamped inside with a little confetti heart and this pretty card was done.

All right, now I'm sending you off to Kim's blog! Be sure to join in all the birthday festivities we have going on today (psssttt...there are prizes involved!)
