happy birthday, monika! (TCEC)

Another STAMPlorations teamie is celebrating her birthday today.

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday dear Monika,
Happy birthday to you!
And many mooooore.

Monika always surprises me by taking some stamp or part of it and making borders with it. I always smile at that little touch. So I gave it a try.

Stamped the sentiment from VIGNETTE: Chevron and Arrows around the edges, doodled a border and stamped a strip from VIGNETTE: Grunge Floral Strips at the bottom. Then I grabbed some tidbits to create a focal point and voila.

With all these die cuts I'm going to limbo in to the Cutting Edge #2 once again too.

 Happy day, Monika!

Supplies for happy birthday:
Paper:  CS Bringmann
Stamps: STAMPlorations
Ink : Distress Ink, Hero Arts soft granite
Tools: sprig and alpha dies Memory Box, tag die PTI, border die MFT
Other: black marker, crochet thread

This is fabulous! Love the doodled border and the monogram (can you tell I'm not watching the footy?)

Oh is this gorgeous! Love that open leaf die. Great thought to include the initial to make the card even more personal. I'll be borrowing that idea!

Your design ideas are brilliant and the addition "m" is superb!
