Happy Birthday Loll




Today  Monday is a special day for a special lady.

Happy Birthday Loll!

This is a total CASE of a card by Lin (Sending Hugs)
Her beauty sent me searching for the dies.
They've been sitting in my NBUS box for way too long.

To make this card, I die cut the Memory Box Gorgeous Gardenia Die 
from Mixed Media paper.

I laid the cut out on another piece of Mixed Media paper and watercolored
over, around and through the die cut.

It acted as a stencil and left a pretty image.

I cut that out with the Gorgeous Gardenia background die.

When everything was dry, I glued it all together and put it on a card, 
framing it with my new Stitched Frame Die cut.

A few splatters and sequins and it was dressed to go.

Loll will probably see this before she sees the real thing.

And it's a CAS Mix Up card.

If you hurry you can get a card in there before the challenge closes.

And while you're at it, why not go over and wish our friend Loll,
Happy Birthday!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

What a beautiful CASE Bonnie! I do so love your card and the one that you CASEd. I too am loving that die set, of course I would right?!! I'm always being enable some how as I go through my blog visits. lol Now I guess I am going to hang my head in shame, because I was thinking that Loll's birthday was on the 27th. Will have to fix that in my birthday book! She is indeed a very special lady!!!! Hugs, Brenda
