Happy Birthday Merry!

One of my friends on the Papertrey Ink message boards is celebrating her birthday today! Merry has been though a lot lately, and I wanted to be sure to send her a little sunshine today.

Merry, just a little note to pass well wishes and hugs onto you today. Happy Birthday girlie! We love ya! :) Here is a birthday card from me:



I also used this opportunity to try out the PTI Make it Monday Challege this week - Making your own spray mists with reinker. I used the Simply Chartruse reinker in a mini-mister to spray the bottom half of the card front for a pale green hue, and then ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Linen/Canvas Impression Plate for a little bit if texture.



Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Honey Bees, Sending You
Paper: Ripe Avocado, Stampers Select White
Ink: Simply Chartruese reinker, Ripe Avocado, Raspberry Fizz, Sweet Blush, Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, Summer Sunrise, Tea Dye Duo, Memento Rich Cocoa
Impression Plate: Linen/Canvas
Other: Corner Rounder, Copic Marker, Pop Dots
