Hip Hop Rewind -Birthday Chic!

Hi everyone and welcome to my 3rd Hip Hop! Today's theme is Hip Hop Rewind. We can use any kit previously released by Unity. I chose the super fun Birthday Chic!! I am always in need of birthday cards and this set is PERFECT and FUN!

If you are following the hop, you came my way via the amazing Jen Buck. If not, feel free to go back to the beginning at Angela's blog -there's lots of great Rewind goodness to see! This card also uses yesterday's SCS sketch. I colored the present with copics and highlighted the ribbon and bow with Sakura Stardust pens. The DP is a combo of PTI Bitty Stars and SU's Delicate Dots.

This second card is SUPER quick and easy to make -love those for the last minute cards my sister always needs -LOL! See the fun scalloped paper? I found at Big Lots an entire Martha Steward bridal invitation kit for $2!! It has 40 A2 sized cards with a punched/embossed border and envies (plus lots more). S-C-O-R-E! These are perfect for CAS cards, so I am sure you will be seeing lots more cards with this lovely border!

All I did for this card is stamp the super cute sentiment, add some ribbon and LOTS of bling. It's hard to see in the picture but the row of rhinestones alternate pink and clear!!

Like usual, I will be chatting in the Hip Hip thread and giving away another prize around 1:00 (Pacific). Stop by and say HI!!


NOW HEAD ON TO THE FABULOUS:
