Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop Friendly Hello Sale-a-bration

Hello and Welcome to our monthly international Blog Hop!

This month, our theme is Birthday - and the Friendly Hello bundle from Sale-a-bration is a totally marvellous way to help celebrate a birthday!!  

My inspiration has come from the sweet paper - which I have also coloured using Stampin' Blends - So Saffron and Soft Sea Foam keeping with the sweetness of the Petal Pink designer series paper.

I've created a small centre fold card which is a lovely way to show off gorgeous papers - and then stamped some of the images from the coordinating Friendly Hello stamp set onto my writing panel in the middle.  These are also coloured using Stampin' Blends with the Memento Black ink for the stamping.

The finishing touches are the greeting stamped onto the smallest Tailor Made Tag die and embellished with black glittery organza ribbon tied with bakers twine.  Lastly I added some sweet Elegant Faceted Gems.

Up next for some more great Birthday Inspiration is the amazing Maureen!
