MHKDesigns Surprise Blog Hop!

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Hello, Kraftie Friends!

Welcome to our SURPRISE Birthday Beach Blog Hop for the lovely Asha! 

You should have arrived here from Julie Odil's Blog!!!
If not, start at the MHKDesigns' Blog to complete the hop for more chances to WIN!  
We are celebrating a very special lady today, and we're doing so by creating beachy birthday cards to wish her many happy returns!

Here's the inspiration photo for the challenge (if you don't have MHKDesigns' digital products...otherwise, it's anything goes!):

Here's my card:


I printed the image, matted with kraft cardstock and inked the edges with a mini blending tool. I did the same thing with the sentiment.
I adhered patterned paper on card base and inked the edges, added the panels and wooden embellishments.
I colored the scene with Copic markers.


Thank you so much for joining in our hop to say "Happy Birthday" to a dear friend!  

Your next stop on the hop is Michele Henderson's Blog!!!
