Happy Birthday Joyce (blog hop)


Happy Birthday Joyce!! One of my fellow "Dolls" has a birthday today and we are celebrating it with a birthday blog hop :).

Please start here at Kim's blog if you are just checking in at my blog.

Welcome to my visitors from Marybeth's blog!

I love BB: Circles and Gracious Vases. My inspiration card was a "Smile" card of Maile's I had in my Evernote file. Click here and scroll to the 2nd card.

 Joyce, I hope you have a wonderful birthday! I enjoy visiting your blog (even if I don't always comment) and appreciate every comment you've ever left me!

 Please go here to Jessica's blog for the next stop on the hop!

 Enjoy!

 Kristin

(p.s. I'm also entering this in this week's MIM Color Inspiration using the Fine Linen, Terracotta Tile, Aqua Mist, Kraft, and Vintage Cream combination.)

Very pretty colour combo, Kristin! I love the flower stamped on the background. The focal point frame is awesome.

Kristin, this card is great! Joyce is just going to adore it. I love that everything is so colorful on the die, and then the leaves extend beyond it. Makes me really want that set ;)

Wow Kristin, love how you stamped those flowers off the label with the vases. I have never seen it done that way...loved it. You are very creative and I bet Joyce is going to love this card.

Kristin, just so beautiful and very elegant! The colors are just so perfect too. I am sure Joyce will be so happy that you made such a fabulous card for her special day. Thanks for playing along today!

Beautiful, Kristin! I love the pattern you made with BB: Circles. I also like how you stamped the flower behind the mat. Great job!

Gina said...

I love the colors, I love how you extended the flowers of the vase of the mat. I love the use of BB: Circles (soooo on my wish list) to create a tablecloth effect. And lastly, I love how everything fits in the frame! Great card!!!!

Joyce said...

What a beautiful card. You used some of my favorite sets, and I love the colors, too. How cool that those flowers continue off of the die cut and on to the card base. So happy that we are Paper Dolls together, and that you are helping me to celebrate my birthday.
