Happy Birthday, Paulette!

Good morning!  Happy Sunday!  Today is a very special day!  It's Paulette's birthday and the Create With TLC Design Team is having a little blog hop to celebrate Paulette's special day!  Paulette is so very kind and generous to share loads of freebies with everyone on the Create With TLC blog.  Be sure to stop by today and wish her a happy birthday and leave her some love!

We all decided to create birthday cards for Paulette using the same image so you can see how versatile her images can be.  The beautiful image we used is available in Paulette's store, but for the next 24 hours, we are all offering it on our blogs as a freebie.  After that, it will be available again in the store.

Here is my card for Paulette:


I started with a card base of SU Soft Sky and layered with patterned papers from the Basic Grey Picadilly 6x6 pad.  I printed Paulette's beautiful image, Your Celebration Quilted, on Cryogen White and colored it with my Copics.  I added some Stickles here and there for some sparkle then spritzed the whole image with Pearl Glimmer Mist to really make it shimmer!  A double-loop satin bow finished my card.

Here is the image we used.  It is now available in the store. 


Be sure to visit the rest of the DT's blogs to see their gorgeous creations for Paulette!
CARLA (you are here)

Happy Birthday, Paulette!!  Enjoy your special day!!

Oh, and I'm entering my card in the Corrosive Challenge #147 (use something from a bottle - I used Stickles and Glimmer Mist) and Basic Grey Challenge (spring colors).
