Michelle's 50th Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Welcome!! I am glad you were able to hop along with us today to celebrate Michelle's 50th Birthday!!  




You should have come here from Kelly's Blog. If you want to see the whole blog hop list or start from the beginning go to the 

Here is my card to celebrate!!





I wanted to make a special card for Michelle, so I made my first trifold card.  The card is mostly just one layer with the Ballerinas glues to each panel.
I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks and with layering and masking created the floor. 
For the stage lighting I used masking paper and sponged Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers, and Wilted Violet Distress inks I them sprayed water on top and picked it up with a paper towel to get a distressed look.
For the stamping I used Flirty Fuchsia, Party Dress, All the Jazz, Icing on the Cake and Sweet Sixteen inks from Catherine Pooler Designs .
The stamps are all from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps and are Tutu, Sassy Smiles, Holly Jolly Christmas, Franklyism's, and Truth Is. 
I used was Bristol Smooth Cardstock.

Michelle has also put the WTF 2 stamp set on sale for 23% off for the duration of the hop or until supplies last. 
You can get yours here.

Next on the hop is Marcia.

Please comment on each stop along the hop to increase your chances of winning one of five $50 gift codes to the 
CAS-ual Fridays Stamps Shop.

Prizes will be announced on the afternoon of April 24th on the CAS-ual Fridays Blog.

Thanks for stopping by!!

You went all out and pulled all the stops. It's very kind of you to make a "fancier" milestone birthday card for her. I know all the cards will mean a great deal to her Thank you for your kindness and inspiration!
