Today is my friend Danni’s birthday and she is celebrating with a blog hop!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DANNI!!!!!!!!


It’s a Flutter By hop, just like the Wednesday challenge she used to run.   You will find a full list below my card of all the participants. Danni is giving away two separate gift certificates to blog commenters, the deadline for commenting is Monday, September 7th.  The winners will be posted on Tuesday, September 8th on Danni’s blog!


Here is my card, which is also Danni’s birthday card 🙂  I had a vision and ran with it.  My first attempt at an ombre card, so fun!!  I used Lawn Fawn’s Chevron Backdrops, Flutter By and Birthday Tags (sentiment), all for the first time.  I tried to include several Danni favorites including pink, butterflies and lots of sparkle!


2015 Card 91 - Lawn Fawn Flutter By



I started out with a piece of SU Whisper White cardstock and stamped the chevron stamp with Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride, Strawberry Slush, Melon Mambo and Cherry Cobbler.  Then I mounted it to a Melon Mambo card base. The Flutter By butterflies were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on Copic Xpress It cardstock and colored with copics and cut out with the coordinating dies. I then popped them up on dimensionals and stickled the heck out of them lol.  The sentiment strip is Coastal Cabana with the sentiment from Birthday Tags and finished off with a few rhinestones.


Here is the full list of participants:
