Michele's 50th Birthday Blog Hop!

I'm part of a special blog hop today, to celebrate Michele Gross' 50th birthday! Hooray! Michele is so kind and generous, and I'm so glad to be a part of this celebration of her special birthday!
You should have arrived from Lori Kobular's blog - here's my card:
 I made this card with a rainbow of Distress Oxide inks (worn lipstick, spiced marmalade, squeezed lemonade, twisted citron and broken china) using the ink smooshing technique. I then splattered some
perfect pearls mixed with water to add some shine, and then stamped the sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays "Whole Shebang" in Versafine Onyx Black ink - that sentiment makes me both laugh and nod in agreement ;) 

Next on the blog hop is the amazingly talented Laurel Beard - I can't wait to see what she has made!

Make sure you visit the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog for all the details - there are five $50 vouchers to be won to people who comment on the blog hop stops! You can find all of the details HERE.

Thanks for visiting :)
