a muse|studio blog hop

I hope you're enjoying  hopping along during our blog hop and discovering lots of a muse|studio goodness!

You should have arrived here from Lisa's blog.  Be sure to leave comments on all the blogs for your chance to win some blog candy from Krystie.

This card was inspired by a sample that I got from my amazing upline, Krystie that can be found here.  Here are the deets on my card. Cardstocks used are cherry, sugar, and sky.   The focal piece is cut out with a Labels 8 nestie and then stamped with the branch and flowers from Sushi and Wasabi in French Roast (stamped off once) and cranberry.  BirthdayWishes is from Contemporary Greetings and is also stamped with French Roast.  Rhinestones are a muse micro twinkles--can you tell I can't get enough of them right now?  I punched a couple of holes near the branch and threaded some sky stitched grosgrain ribbon through it.  This pieces is popped up on the card front with 3d foam adhesive and mounted over a strip of sky cardstock that is scored and lightly sanded and then the cherry cardbase.

Expect to see more birthday cards because I've got a lot of Spring birthdays in my circle of friends and family and I'm a new sender in the SCS BRAK group.
