Happy Birthday Karen!

It's the fabulous Karen Baker's birthday today!  And in honor of her special day, we're throwing her a party.  Erin is our host and we were all asked to bring a little something to our party.  In addition to my card above, I thought I'd bring along a little silly string (probably will keep Karen's boys occupied for a bit during the party) and knowing Karen she'd think of something creative to do with the silly string!  She is one amazingly talented designer and above all she is a kind friend and loving mom.  I love reading her blog as she'll teach us, laugh with us and share her amazing talent with us.  I feel blessed to call her my friend.  I'm hoping one day soon we can meet in person.  We have so much fun chatting about being moms to all boys and sharing stories about them.  I'm sure we'd have even more fun in person.

For my card, I had to honor Karen by using my spray mists...she is the queen of mists.  And I did a bit of a diy embellishment by using flowers to create butterflies.  And I think Karen loves the PTI impression plate like me...so I finished off the card with embossing it.

Happy Birthday Karen!  I hope you have a wonderful day!  Be sure to check out what all the talented designers have brought along to the party.

I didn't realize the butterflies were misted at first glass, what a great way to add a little something extra to a fabulous CAS card, and yes that impression plate is fabulous. Thank you for joining the party, I can only imagine the mess we're going to make with the silly string, chuckle chuckle.
