Happy Birthday Kristine!

It's not Wednesday, but I have a La-La Land card for you because it's my fellow DT member, Kristine's birthday today!!

A bunch of the DT members wanted to celebrate her special day so we made a birthday blog hop for her! If you came here by way of Pam's blog, then you're on the right track! If you just happened upon me, then you'll want to start at the La-La Land Crafts Blog to see the special post done in Kristine's honor, and then hop through all the stops for some fab La-La Land eye candy!

Here's the card I made:

I used Cupcake Rosie and kept the card simple because I adore this Rosie image and wanted her to really be the focus of the card! The sketch is from Sketchy Thursday and the paper is from the DCWV Rustic pad.

I watercolored Rosie with Distress reinkers, distressed and sponged all the edges of the panels and added a bit of ribbon and a Papertrey Ink sentiment to finish it off.

Your next stop is the super talented Kim!

Kristine - I hope you like it and I hope you have the most wonderful birthday!!


  1. Maureen!
    I luv your soft colors for this card! :) Rosie is happy and I know Kristine will be just as happy to see this card of yours!

    Thank you so much for joining this hop!
