Happy Birthday Betty!!!!

Today is Betty Roberts 40th Birthday!!! YES the BIG 40, so we thought we would make it as special as we possibly can!  The Awesome Rachel Sharp
drew us up an image to use for Betty's Birthday!!

A whole bunch of AMAZING, SUPER TALENTED ladies have done some UNBELIEVABLE projects for you to see, they have all been mailed out to Betty so she should get some AMAZING mail...
but we thought you would all like to see these FANTASTIC projects so we have put together a "little" hop with all our birthday projects.

This image was a blast to color up and to be a part of such a fun and wonderful surprise made it even better.  I loved that this was kept a secret from Betty all these months!

I made a sliding popup card for Betty.  It is so much cuter in person but since this is the first card I am actually sending to someone in a long long time I guess that is alright.

My background paper is Charcoal Glitter Paper from American Crafts and the skull is a Cuddlebug die.  The blue band is embossed with a Cuddlebug embossing folder that matched a Cricut cartridge I own- you can't see it very well. The ribbon and brad are from my stash.  The flower is a punch and I used glittered corrugated card stock for it.  My solids are from Stampin Up.

She is colored with my Graph'it markers.  I'm not listing my color combos but if anyone is interested I would be happy to add them- I just didn't want to make the post any longer.
I wish the embossing would show in the pictures.  The skulls have Glossy Accents on them and that isn't showing well either. poo!

Here are links to all the other fun cards made for Betty.  Be sure to hop around and check them out.  There are some really talented girls out there!

Corinne also has wonderful cards by Leanne, Cynthia Cole, April, Cat, Dena

  6. I really like the colours you have used together on this card. I also like the embellies you have used, enough to compliment the image but not overdone.
