Birthday Bash for Shirley

Today is Shirley Bampton's birthday and her fabulous creative friend Maria from Rieslingmama is hosting a linky party for her. Of course I wanted to join in. After all I am a BIG admirer of Shirley and we are on the STAMPlorations team together. In case you don't know, Shirley started to design her own stamps recently and I of course had to use one of hers for her card!

So,

Happy Birthday Shirley!

I hope you have a blast and have many more, 'cause I always love to see what you create! You are one awesome card maker!



I wish we could eat that cake together, but unfortunately normally the Atlantic is between us....but right now I am in Israel ...... so not really any closer....

Here is another look of my card. I used the CityGirl stamp from STAMPlorations (desigend by Shirley), masked it and sponged around in yellow. Added the envelope pattern background stamp from Hero Arts and the sentiment. Cut two thin stripes in grey and yellow and added enamel dots.

I hope you like it Shirley!

Not quite sure how I missed this AWESOME card - especially being #1. I adore how you shadowed the image and left it b&W - Very cool effect that I might just have to copy :)
