Happy Birthday Thinlit

Good Morning everyone! WOW...another BEAUTIFUL day...cooler weather...almost 20 degrees cooler and I LOVE it! The only bad thing about it is that I'm gonna be driving all day! YEP...I'm headed to Mount Hope Bible Camp in Forbestown, California...or Challenge, California depending on what map app I use.  Fortunately, they are in the same spot so I will be going in the right direction! I'm dropping my daughter off and another young lady from church...so I'll be getting on the road soon! Camp sounds like so much FUN! My older children all went to Hume Lake Christian Camp in the the Sequoia National forest...it was GORGEOUS and they had so much fun...but it's nine hours away, so not really an option.  Kate will have a great time...she's hoping a friend she met last year from Stockton, CA is going, they write each other...yep... SNAIL MAIL. I think that is so cool...they come from different parts of the state to one camp...year after year and can continue friendships! 

Anyway...I have a card to share with you today that we made at my classes this month.  I have so much FUN at my classes!

This card has a Very Vanilla card base with its first layer being the NEW In-Color Tranquil Tide cut to 4 1/8" X 5 5/8". I used a 4" X 5 1/4" piece of Watercolor paper and colored Lemon Lime Twist Ink onto it using my Aqua Painter. I love the look that this tool creates. I was able to make it darker at the bottom simply by adding more ink. The sentiment is cut with the Happy Birthday thinlit from Tranquil Tide cardstock.  I added a bow (and some color) with the Berry Burst 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding...LOVE THIS RIBBON! Last, I finished it off by adding a few Glimmer Enamel Dots!





  

I wanted to add a little color to the inside of the card, but wanted to have plenty of room to write a note so I just added a scrap piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock with a layer of Berry Burst designer paper form the Fresh Florals designer paper pack!  I LOVE these colors together!  

Well..that's it for today!  THANKS BUNCHES for stopping by!  Have a FABULOUS day and I sure hope you find time to CREATE!! I hope I get home in time to get out into my workshop to create as well!
