Happy Birthday, Jessica!

Hi there!! I am participating in a super FUN birthday blog hop today honoring the owner of There She Goes Clear Stamps - Jessica Knutsen!!! Her birthday isn't actually until later in the week, but since it falls during release week, we're wishing her a happy birthday a little early! That's okay...she can celebrate all week long! :)

Jessica, I hope you have a WONDERFUL birthday!

Here's a birthday card I made for you. It might come in the mail a little late, though! I'm sorry!

I used the Aim for the Clouds stamp set by There She Goes and colored it with Copic markers. I cut out the hot air balloon and popped it up over the landscape with foam tape. I used some Liquid Applique on the clouds. The patterned papers are from the Hello Summer collection by Echo Park. My cardstock background was embossed with the Seeing Spots embossing folder, and I used the MFT Simply Scallops Border Dienamics to add some trim to the bottom. My image panel is layered on a Lacey Circle Nestabilitie shape. I added a sentiment on a little flag and finished my card off with a few pearls and a ribbon. I hope Jessica loves it!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have fun on the birthday hop! Don't forget to wish Jessica a happy birthday! :)
