Want2Scrap Top Secret Birthday Party Blog Hop

Welcome to the Want2Scrap Birthday Party Blog Hop for Michele Parrish. If you would like to start at the beginning, head on over to the Want2Scrap Blog.

Happy 50th Birthday, Michele!! I hope you have a fabulous day!!

Bling is the theme!! 

Michele loves pink and bling.
Here's the card I created for her:

I've been a big fan of Michele's Want2Scrap bling and chipboard for a long time. My newest Want2Scrap must have products are her wonderful stencils designed by Donna Salazar!!

Project Details
Aren't the Want2Scrap chipboard pieces so gorgeous heat embossed with Fran-tage embossing powders? I used Donna Salazar's Spellbinders Grand Peony Dies to create these Crushed Voile Peonies centered with one of her Bitty Blossoms flowers. My tutorial for these flowers can be found here. The triple looped bow is created with white organza ribbon. All of these items from the delicate flowers to the heavier chipboard are adhered with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive. 

Here's another view showing off the gorgeous Want2Scrap Chipboard and pearl flourish.

Can I just say how much I adore these teardrop pearls?? Let's just say, I have several packages in my stash!! They are just perfect to accent this doily!! I colored the doily using DSD Mix'd Media Inx and ran some embroidery floss around the center circle. I stamped and embossed the sentiment then inked the cardstock background. I just love how Donna's Inx work so well with her papers. I used her Natural Beauty collection here. My DSD Distrezz-It-All made quick work of distressing the edges.
