Happy Birthday Kazan! 47

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, November 3, 2010 @ 5:26 AM | ,

Hi There! Today, the 2Sketches4You DT and myself are hopping along to wish our dear friend and team-mate Kazan a Happy Birthday! I hope you can join along, leaving some love for Kazan (click HERE) and all the DT girls as well :)

I had the pleasure of meeting Kazan while at the Spellbinders™ retreat this past Spring. Kazan is the type of person who lights up the room and is the life of the party! Kazan is so witty and her South African accent is like no other! She will keep you in stitches!!! I hope you have the BEST day ever Kazan :) Here is my Happy Birthday card for Kazan:
I inked up a border from Applique Decorative Border and Center with Memento Tuxedo Black ink then using a S4-295 Lacey Square die template to cut/emboss the image. 
The Best Wishes sentiment is from Victorian Nested Frames. Don't you just love the elegant scripty font?

Please hop on over to see what the rest of the 2Sketches4You DT created for Kazan:

Mona Pendleton (that's me :)
I also made another card to share:
For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's JustRite's Friday Challenge 042: Sketch.
The lil' sentiment is from Seeds of Kindness Borders & Centers which was stamped then cut/embossed with a S4-295 Lacey Squares die template and layered on top of another lacey square "doily" that was stamped with a border from Applique Decorative Border and Center with Memento London Fog ink.
Thanks so much for looking and I hope you stop by Kazan's blog to wish her a Happy Birthday and all the girls blogs. Hope you have a great day!

Both cards are soft and elegant. This is some of my favorite paper. I have been hoarding it! I think you are going to make me break it out and use it.
