Hello, and welcome to our SURPRISE Birthday Beach Blog Hop for the lovely Asha! You should have arrived here from Michele Henderson's blog. Make sure to complete the entire hop, starting at MHKDesigns, for more chances to WIN! We are celebrating a very special lady today, and we're doing so by creating beachy birthday cards to wish her many happy returns!
Here's the inspiration we are using~
I chose to use a mash up of different products from the MHKDesigns Etsy shop for my card for Asha. I kept with the beach theme and added a birthday sentiment. Take a peek...
The image, from the Serene Seaside digital stamp set, was colored with colored pencils. Some glitter was added to the clouds for added texture and shine, and a few seashells and a rhinestone were added as accents in the bottom left hand corner.
I chose to use a sentiment from the Fruit Borders set for this birthday greeting card. Asha is a beautiful person, and she deserves so much to have a beautiful day! I printed the sentiment on vellum, then layered it over black cardstock and papers from the Serene Seaside and Autumnal Accents digital paper packs.
My kraft card base was prepped with more paper from the Serene Seaside digital paper pack, matted with black, and some cheesecloth to mimic the texture of a fishing net. I hope that Asha approves, and I hope you do, too! I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
Asha, I hope you have an AMAZING day, my friend! Spend time with your hubby and fur babies, eat whatever you want, do whatever you want, and remember that you are LOVED!!! Thank you SO MUCH for all you do to help me personally and for the joy you spread throughout blog land!
