Happy Birthday Merry!

This is my second post today. Scroll down for weekend challenge 3

We are having a special birthday blog hop for our sweet friend Merry over on the Papertrey Ink messageboard.  Merry has been through a lot lately, and we all want to send her a little sunshine on her special day and celebrate this day with her. Here's the card I made in Merry's honor.

Happy Birthday, Merry!! Wishing you the best on your birthday, and every happiness in the year ahead.



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper (White, Kraft), Papertrey Ink (Stamper's Select White, New Leaf) | Clear stamps: Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 4 Collection, Turning a New Leaf, Tiny Tags) | Ink: Papertrey Ink (Hawaiian Shores, Fresh Snow), Versafine (Onyx Black) | Button: Papertrey Ink (White & Cream Mix) | Felt: Papertrey Ink (Raspberry Fizz) | Twine: May Arts | Tools: Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 4 Die, Turning a New Leaf Collection, Beautiful Blooms II #1 Die Collection, Small Scalloped Border Die, Tiny Tags, By The Numbers Impression Plate) | Other: foamtape

And some details...



I love the Turning a New Leaf Die Collection. I stamped the leaves with Fresh Snow ink on New Leaf cardstock to give the green cardstock a softer look.



Enjoy your special day and this blog hop, Merry! I've been thinking of you. Hugs from the Netherlands...
