…Julee’s Happy Birthday Hop

PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE MERCY’S MAGNIFICENT MUSINGS FOR THIS WEEK.

BirthdayBlogHop Today is a very special day!  The Verve Divas and other Verve Friends are here to celebrate Julee Tilman’s birthday with a surprise BLOG HOP!  If you’ve come here from SHANNAN’S BLOG, then you’re in the right place! :)

Happy Birthday, Julee!  We hope that you have a day as wonderful and as special as you are!  {{{HUGS}}}  Here’s the card that I made for Julee:

card_1410

I created this card using the Verve set “Always On My Mind”.  I wanted to use a simple layout, so I only used two pieces of patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye’s Be Loved paper pack.  I added Riding Hood Red mats, and some White Stitching along the edge of the Apron Lace Punch/patterned paper panel.  I stamped the sentiment and star streamers from the set in Tuxedo Black onto PTI White Cardstock, then colored each of them with Copic Sketch Markers.   I added some sparkle to the stars using Crystal Stickles, and also added a piece of Coral Ribbon around the dry embossed Kraft Cardstock background layer.  After adding some Paper Piercing and a ton of Dimensionals the card was complete.

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you back here again tomorrow with another TSG Monday Challenge!  In the meantime, your next stop on the hop is WANDA CULLEN’S BLOG!  If you get lost along the way, you can stop by the Verve Blog for the complete Blog Hop List.  Until tomorrow…
