More Birthday Wishes for Michele!

(note: the Girl Friday hop for Michele is below)



Happy Birthday, again, Michele!! Here's my first birthday post with the Girl Fridays. This post is part of the Ink Squad Birthday Hop (where you should have come from Virginia's blog). We're using


COLOR

to send Michele a collective birthday wish. Each blog gets a letter from the word "birthday" and makes a card focused on that color. I've got the last letter in "birthdaY", so of course my card will be mostly YELLOW.


This card uses:
  • stop sign from Stop (tilted so it looks less like a stop sign, more like a graphic element);
  • sentiment from Bold Wishes; and
  • arrows from Rad (embossed in gold and colored in with alcohol markers).

 The background sky was created with a highly technical method of coloring ...dried out marker! Grrrr. RIP, most perfect shade of aqua blue. The other numbers next to you just aren't the same.

If you've been hopping, then congrats, you've made it to the last stop! You might want to check out the Girl Friday Birthday Hop next:
