MHK Designs Birthday Blog Hop!

Hello, and welcome to our SURPRISE Birthday Beach Blog Hop for the lovely Asha!  You should have arrived here from Rachelle's blog.  If not, start at the MHKDesigns blog to complete the hop for more chances to WIN!  We are celebrating a very special lady today, and we're doing so by creating beachy birthday cards to wish her many happy returns!

I didn't get the theme or photo inspiration for this one, but I did make a birthday card!  lol!  

I've used a cute digi  cake and sentiment provided by MHK Designs and foiled it in this electric blue.  It doesn't show very well in the pic, but it's really shiny! The white doily cut is a Spellbinder's Die and the blue doily is a Cricut cut with Colorbok foil paper.  The card is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and I used a distressing tool around the edges.  The current challenge at Tuesday Throwdown is "Distressing" and it starts today also.  Be sure to join us there, too!

Thank you so much for joining in our hop to say "Happy Birthday" to a dear friend!  Your next stop on the hop is Tracey Mowbray's blog!   Good luck in the hop and have fun!!!
