Woot! Woot! It's time for a Birthday Blog Hop for one Amazeballs woman, Michele Gros!
You probably know her better as the founder of the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge blog (where you probably saw from last week's challenge that her birthday was coming up this week!) and the founder and creator of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps!
The Girl Fridays decided we needed to show her some extra birthday love today because we are so crazy about her! If you are following along the hop, you just came from Pamela's blog. That girl is crazy, artsy talented!
I loved the card I made for our birthday challenge, but thought I would kick it up a notch for Michele's "official" card. You've probably seen Julie's amazing tutorial for a new washi tape shaker card, or at least some cool cards made using the technique, so I gave it a go using the Amazeballs stamp set. Instead of using sequins for my shaker bits, I used the enamel dots from My Mind's Eye. I stuck a few down permanently so they'd line up under the stamped circles, but I left the rest "free" to be shaken. I dipped the enamel dots in clear embossing powder, then dusted them off, so they wouldn't be sticky on the back anymore.
Hope you enjoy the card and our blog hop for Michele! From here, you'll want to head on over to Leigh Ann's blog to check out her fantabulous birthday card! If you get lost along the way...or want to venture out on your own...here are the hop stops:
The Ink Squad girls from CAS-ual Fridays are also hosting a blog hop for Michele! Is she loved or what?! You can follow along with them too: Dana, Karen, Kelly, Laurie, Lynn, Michelle, Piali, and Virginia!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
