Earth Day / Birthday Hop !

Happy Earth Day !! and Happy Birthday to Gaby!! Thanks so much to her for asking me to participate.

If you have arrived from Lori's blog you are in the right place!!! If your not you may start at the beginning HERE

I created an garden inspired easel card. I tried a new technique ripping the paper and I like how it turned out. It says "Grow where you are planted"


I used various materials including Pink by Design crinkle ribbon, Martha Stewart starburst punch, stamps from Joanns, glitter brads, an patterned paper from DCWV playtime stack.

Someone say BLOG CANDY?? Please become a follower and leave me a comment for a chance to win a handmade vinyl Cricut bug for your car or machine your choice of color and style.

Thanks so much for stopping by! The next blog on the hop is Ruthie's super cute blog !

I love this card. I can't really tell but is the paper ripping technique from the center? What makes it curl? i suppose i should go find a tutorial and find the directions. It is gorgeous!!! Thanks Tami

Hi Michelle!

I love these types of cards. I have never made one but after seeing the one you did I really want to give it a whirl! I'm a new follower so when I do try it I hope you don't mind if I use your card for a guide. However, I will have to put my own crazy spin on it so I know it won't be nearly as pretty as yours! Thank you for sharing on this Birthday Earthday hop!
