Merry Monday Christmas Challenge: Birthday Hop

The folks at Merry Monday Christmas Challenge are doing a birthday hop this week!  This may not make much sense until I tell you that the hop is for the wonderful LeAnne Pugliese.  I love LeAnne's blog.  Besides her amazing talent and fabulous cards, if you have followed her for any length of time, you have gotten to see Cassidy grow up!  Little Cassidy has a fabulous smile and never fails to make me smile back when I see her on my screen.  Happy Birthday LeAnne!

Birthday Banner

Also for my card, I am using the colors at Fab Friday (mainly because I wanted to use my brand new sequins(!) from Stampin' Up and the challenge has two of the sequin colors!)


And I used the sketch from clean & simple (mainly because I have to use some new Mama Elephant dies - the banner - per my discussion just a couple of posts ago about the cost of stamps and coordinating dies!)


  • Stamps: Mama Elephant Soiree (the banner), My Favorite Things Birthday Greetings (sentiment)
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana
  • Accessories: Mama Elephant Soiree dies, My Favorite Things Blueprints 13 (the stitching), Stampin' Up Sequins (and one yellow sequin from Pretty Pink Posh)
