Here's wishing Stephanie, the amazingly talented designer and owner of Bella Blvd. a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! And to celebrate we are doing a blog hop of the birthday cards the design team created especially for her. For those that are just joining me, you will want to go to the Bella Blvd blog, so you can start at the beginning of the blog hop because you don't want to miss anything.
Here is the card I created for Stephanie. I have always said that one of the things I love about Bella products is that many of the collections compliment each other and the colors blend so well. So it's great when you have small left overs and you can use them up. Would you believe I used three different collections on this card? Yep! To create the base of the card I used the Sophisticates Short Stories, Petite Pieces, and Calendars. I added a cute yellow border sticker from the Alpha + Bits Spring Flings & Easter Things sticker sheet. The flower is an ever so cute Baby Blooms a Bella. I can't get enough of these flowers! The title was created with the Simply Sonoma letters from the Sophisticates collection and the sticker details are from the Winter Wonder and Sophisticates card miniatures stickers.
Even though it's Stephanie's birthday, we have some gifts for a few of you lucky readers as well! We know how generous and giving Stephanie is, and we know she would never have a fun blog hop, without a few giveaways up for grabs too. So we got permission from Robin, who works alongside Stephanie in the office, to pick TEN lucky winners, who will each receive a Bella Blvd collection. All you need to do to be entered in the random drawings, is to leave Stephanie your birthday wishes in the comment section. You have lots of opportunities to up your chances, since you can leave a comment on each blog you visit, as you go through the blog hop. There are 26 blogs, plus the Bella Blvd blog, for a total of 27 chances to get your name in the pot. We will randomly choose winners, from 10 randomly choosen blogs, and announce them on Friday! Good Luck!!
For the next stop on the blog hop, you are going to visit Megan Klauer's blog. HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEPHANIE AND HAPPY BLOGGING TO ALL OF YOU!
