For the Birthday Girl...

Hey everyone!

It's Prettie Wednesday today, but also just happens to be DT member (and recently, add stamp illustrator to her title!) Danielle Lounds's bday and I am so excited to be celebrating her!

That's right! It wouldn't be a Prettie Girls' birthday unless we had a Blog Hop, so if you're just starting out here today on my blog, be sure to head over to Jodi's blog to officially begin the festivities!

I am very excited to be wishing Danielle a happy birthday! You know when it comes to those people who are always on the top of your "list" of those stampers out there that you admire, Danielle is definitely on mine! Her beautiful designs always keep us oohing and ahhing and her coloring? Well, it's simply some of the best I've seen!

So for always being so encouraging and providing such a huge source of inspiration to us Prettie Girls, Danielle, I wish you the happiest of birthdays! I used the new Make a Wish Sophia from Paper Pretties to create Danielle's birthday card and used this week's challenge-a color combo! The challenge was to use Bermuda Bay and Soft Suede. Well, I don't have those colors so I improvised and used PTI Dark Chocolate w/ Ocean Tides and some of my favorite DP by My Mind's Eye.

The layout is from this week's Taylored Expressions sketch challenge, TESC77!

Well, I hope you've enjoyed our hop so far and be sure to head over now to Frances' blog to check out all the cuteness over there!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DANIELLE!
