Paper Sweeties 2nd Birthday Designers' Blog Hop

It's Paper Sweeties' 2nd Birthday, and the party horns are sounding!  I was tickled pink when my friend, Debbie Marcinkiewicz, asked if I'd help her celebrate this special occasion.   Happy birthday, Debbie!



We're doing a fun blog hop today, and if you're following along the trail, you should have come from Lori Hairston's blog.  (If you'd like to start at the beginning, just go HERE.)


I used the Paper Sweeties August inspiration photo and colors for my card.




I used the adorable little set, Pennant Party.  Love the flexibility of the sentiments and banner.  I stamped the banner on pale blue striped paper, and added some embellishments to it:  Liquid Pearls, vintage thread bows, tiny punched flowers with more Liquid Pearls.


I assembled the sentiment alongside the neat-o cake stand, which is part of the design on the patterned paper.


Thanks so much for taking a peek today!  Your next stop on the blog hop is Lysa Rohrer's blog.  Have fun hoppin'!
