Jessica's (KinderStampO) Secret B-Day Blog Hop

Good morning and welcome to the Jessica's (KinderStampO)  Secret B-Day Blog Hop. This was a surprise, I hope it is a good one.  Happy Birthday Jessica!!!  I hope your day is as special as you are.  I love being a Guest designer on your team, you are awesome.
Below is the sketch for our projects.   

Soooo, I made a Birthday card using this sketch and also used products from The KinderStampO shop.  First of all you shaold have arrived here from Limors' blog, if not, please start at the beginning, here there are tons of fabulous projects and you don't want to miss a single one! I will post the blog list below so you do not get lost.

For my card I used Paper from the DCWV Fresh Floral Stack.  I love that stack, it has such soft colors and beautiful flower prints/  The card stock is Michaels recollections paper. I cut the daisy flower from the Art Philosophy cartridge at 3" and then ran it through my Sizzix Texture Boutique Embossing machine, sorry I do not know the name of the folder, it has writing, that is all I know. I then inked the edges with CTMH Cottan Candy.  I also Stamped the sentiment from the CTMH  Celebrations stamp set with their New England Ivy ink pad.  I then added a button to the center of the flower and a organza pink butterfly.  The rest of the embellishing came from KinderStampO's store

Products used from KinderStampO store:

I also used some yellow lace ribbon from KinderStampO, no picture available/
Make sure you take a browse through the KniderStampO store and get some goodies for yourself Here
 Below is the first card I made, I had a blonde / senior moment and made the card without using any  KinderStampO products...can you believe it?? Lol.

There will be a $25.00 gift card for one lucky winner to the KinderStampO store, and in order to be eligible, you must stop at all the blogs on the hop, including KinderStampO and leave some bloggy Love!  thats it:0)  Happy Hopping:)
