Happy Birthday Darnell!

The wonderful Darnell from djcardkreations is celebrating her birthday today! 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY you sweetheart! I wish you many more. I love seeing your new creations and your blogposts - they are a treat to read! You have inspired my at so many levels - thank you!
I am sure everyone knows Darnell - if not you better head over to her wonderful blog.....

Darnell, this is for you:


I hope you like it!



I got inspired by this weeks "Masking with die cuts" over at Make it Mondays. The super talented Erin Lincoln is showing us how to do this expertly. Its a great video to watch! So I went to "work" on this card. I diecut post it notes for masking, sponged around them and then stamped in the flowers, deliberately leaviing an off center white border around the stamps. the happy is die cut from a paint chip. All supplies are by Papertrey. Added some tiny white dots and some sprinkles of Mr. Huey.

There is a linky Party going on over at Ardyths blog Maskerade in honor fo Darnells birthday - you may want to join in!  And Bev is hosting a mega party for Darnell over at her blog Happy Dance - go over, say Hi and join in the fun!

Of course I have to link this up with another challenge...
Inkspirational - blue with white or cream

Also edited to add this card to the Wonderful Words Challenge over at Moxie Fab
and to Virginia's View challenge #5 - Die Cut
