Happy Birthday Kellie!

Today the JustRite designers have a special post to share with you! Today is Kellie's birthday! So we are holding a birthday blog hop in her honor! Kellie is such a sweet caring person and a wonderful "boss" to work for! I have had the honor of working for Kellie for several years now and am so glad I've gotten to know her as a person! : )



My birthday card for Kellie uses the JustRite sets, Elegant Frames and You Inspire Me. The birdhouse was cut using my Gypsy and April Shower's Cartridge. The paper is by Pink Paislee. I added a bit of lace to the roof with glossy accents and while it was still wet I sprinkled glitter over it and added 3 pearls to the roof. I stamped the border in green, cut it out by hand, added a bit of glossy accents to the edge and added more glitter! I used this as the "entrance" to the birdhouse. The sentiment was stamped in brown (Memento Ink) and the banner was handcut. I curved it around a pencil to add a bit of dimension to it. The heart was cut using the Cricut, edges were inked, glossy accents added, and glitter sprinkled! I layered it over the green border, added the banner, and tied seam binding around the front. I cut a butterfly from my Cricut and added that to the birdhouse.

I even snuck in a JustRite set, Elegant Frames, at the bottom right hand corner......I stamped the corner in brown using the set. : )

Happy Birthday to you sweet Kellie!!!
