Lindy's Stamp Gang's Birthday Blog Hop

Hi everyone and happy Saturday!
Thanks so much for stopping by today. We are celebrating Lindy's birthday over at Lindy's Stamp Gang, from April 27th-May 4th, with a birthday themed blog hop! The designers have gathered up to share some inspiration using Lindy's (and our) beloved products. 

I've created a simple birthday card with a pop of various colors. I decided to use several of the fabulous Flat Fabios, because I've really been into using them lately. You can see my latest video tutorial, where I used a great number of them to alter a canvas HERE. This time I used Flat Fabios from the Caribbean Cruise Set ( I used Mango Mania, Caribbean Blue, Hibiscus Rose,  and Luscious Lime), over some handmade resist paper I made myself using Lindy's Stamp Gang's Magic Moon Pearls Embossing Powder, and different Hero Arts Stamps. What's that behind the cake? Well, that texture is vellum I embossed using a retired Stampin' Up Stamp, and the Magic Moon Pearls Embossing Powder again.
I also dry embossed part of the background of the card with a Stampin' Up embossing folder, added some ribbon, pearls and a handmade Happy Birthday Banner.
Here are some close-ups of the embossing, and then a picture of the completed card:


I hope you enjoyed my project and continue on to the next blog in line: Bona. Just in case you just found out about the blog hop here, take a look at the line up below. You are going to want to stop by all the participant's blogs and leave them a comment because there will be hidden prizes in them!

The blog hop starts at the Lindy's Stamp Gang blog http://lindystampgang.blogspot.com/
