Want2Scrap: Happy Birthday, Michele!!

Today is Michele Parrish's, owner of Want2Scrap©, milestone birthday!! LOVE her and her products :) A bunch of us are celebrating her birthday on Want2Scrap's Blog!

She and I met through Spellbinders® when Want2Scraps started the Nestabling product line to work with the Nestabilities die templates. They are so easy to use and of course, has that WOW! factor - who doesn't LOVE BLING~?! Through Scrapbook Expo, I see her smiling face and the booth is always crowded with BLING fans :) SO HAPPY BIRTHDAY, my friend - many, many more years of sparkly fun!

Project Supplies:
JustRite Papercraft Stamps - Birthday Vintage Labels Four
JustRite Custom Dies - Vintage Labels Four
Spellbinders Creative Arts - S5-116 Ornate Squares, S6-001 5 x 7 Matting Basics A and S6-004 5 x 7 Detailed Scallops

I used Spellbinders 5 x 7 Card Creator series to make the card front layers and then embellished the edges with 72 ct Pink Pearls Self-Adhesives.

To make a chalkboard inspired look, I heat emboss images from JustRite PaperCraft's Birthday Vintage Labels Four stamp set using Vintage Labels Four dies and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L Foam Squares to create layers and edge with Coconut Gelato.

Here's a close up of those fabulous pearls...need to get more as I used exactly 50 pearls for this project (wink wink!!) - LOL!!

Here's a second look at the birthday card...
