Jessica's Surprise Birthday Blog Hop

Hello there!  Today is a very fun day and I am part of a very special birthday blog hop for Jessica Knutsen - she's the fabulous gal that started up There She Goes Clear Stamps.  I am honored to have been part of her talented design team and now I'm excited to be part of this birthday hop!

For my card today, I used BombDiggity stamps and the layout from Deconstructed Sketch 101.



I stamped the bomb in Black Licorice ink and the hand cut it out to pop up over the little explosion.  I cut out 3 fishtail flags and stamped the sentiment on some 21/Seven paper from Simple Stories.

On the inside of the card, I used a sentiment from A Little Treat and then added my zigzag stitching around the edges.


Happy, happy, happy birthday, Sweet Jessica!  I hope you are blessed beyond measure this year and are filled with joy.  I'm so happy to have met you through this crazy little hobby!!
