Happy Birthday Wendy!

It’s birthday time again for one of our Paper Prettie Design Team Members. Today Wendy Bond is a year older, Happy Birthday Wendy. Of course what better way to celebrate than a Birthday Blog Hop Prettie Girl style! As we can't get together to celebrate in person the next best thing is a virtual birthday party .... yahhhhhhhh what fun! As today is also our Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge we are combing the two.
The hop started at Christie Ortman’s blog so if you didn’t start off there you might want to hop on over there now so you don’t miss out on any of the fun!
This week it is Jackie Rakoski’s turn to host the challenge and Jackie challenged us to use Buttons! That’s right, she wants us to use buttons as our main embellishment … you can use other ones, just make BUTTONS scream on your card.
Ok so I hope my buttons are screaming enough for you Jackie …. ROFLMAO!!!!!!!
For my card I used Paper Pretties “Dreamboat Set” …. I took the colors I colored in the image from the designer paper that I selected for my card. The layout of my card uses this week’s Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge.
Want to play along with us
