CAS-ual Fridays Blog Hop - Happy Birthday Michele!

Today we're celebrating Michele's birthday with a blog hop!  Michele is the owner of CAS-ual Fridays Stamps! If you're hopping along you should have reached me from Laurie Willison's blog. If you'd like to start at the beginning you can get all the details here on the CAS-ual Friday's Blog! 

I've enjoyed getting to know Michele - she's always so kind and generous!  I hope she loves this pink and gold birthday card I made for her!   I want her to celebrate her special day doing all the things she loves best! 
The background for my card was created with a very simple wash on watercolor paper. I like to use the Ranger Distress Ink refills to paint with. I chose Picked Raspberry for a bright pink background. 
I stamped the watercolor panel with the Modern Petals border with Versafine ink and applied gold embossing powder. Because the watercolor paper is not smooth it didn't ink evenly. I love the distressed look that was created.
I embossed the "Celebrate" sentiment on a clean white panel and adhered it with adhesive foam tape to add some dimension to the card. The finishing touch is a sprinkle of gold sequins. 
Michele has some special gifts planned for her birthday! She'll be giving away 5 $50 gift codes to the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Store! One winner will be chosen from the CAS-ual Fridays Blog and the other four will be selected randomly from the comments left alt the stops on the hop! SO PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT!
