Happy Birthday Karen: 2013 Edition!

Happy Birthday, Karen!!
Today we are celebrating an incredibly talented, kind & supportive friend! How lucky I feel to know her & be inspired by her constantly!
In honor of Karen we all used the Artful Delight Sketch and May Arts ribbon (I chose burlap string- burgundy & bittersweet- as she's mentioned it's one of her faves a few times!)
Cardstock is PTI vintage cream & pp is Cosmo Cricket. Tree stamp is PTI, sentiment is SSD- a company that Karen introduced me to!
SU!, fresh ink & memento inks.

How fun are the burlap blooms? I've used a brad to create them. A bit of stickles on the butterfly to even out the metallic!
Now it's time to keep the celebrating going! What makes birthdays even more fun?
Prizes of course!!
There will be 2 prizes for this celebration! One winner from the comments on the blog hop and another from those that go wish Karen a Happy Birthday! (and you were going to do that anyway!!!)
2 spools of May Arts ribbon to each winner!
Here's the list- happy hopping! And Happy Birthday, Karen!
 
Karen’s Birthday Hop!



Jen Shears- you're here!
