Happy Birthday, Kathy!

Today is my La La Land Crafts teammate, Kathy's birthday! Happy Birthday, Kathy! Enjoy your special day and may all your wishes come true!

To celebrate Kathy's special day, Elena, our birthday coordinator came up with an awesome idea to make the special girl feel EXTRA special. Thanks so much, Elena! You are one super duper creative, talented girl!

Elena thought it's cool to do a little WALK OF FAME for Kathy and I wouldn't agree more! Kathy's creations always amaze me! Most of us use Copics or prismacolors and such but do you know that Kathy uses Twinkling H2Os and distress ink for coloring??!! Oh my gosh, you have to check out her stuff! They are so creative, so inspiration! I especially love her distressing techniques...her favorite, that's why her blog is called Distressed stamper!

To honor Kathy's special day, I decided to CASE one of Kathy's card. I love every one of Kathy's cards but I chose to CASE THIS ONE since it has a heart on it. :D

On my card, I used Pumpkin Lala but replaced the pumpkin with the birthday cake from Pepper with Cake.

Hope you have a great one, Kathy!

Card Details:
Stamp: Pumpkin Lala, Cake from Pepper with Cake (La La Land Crafts), birthday sentiment on heart (Hero Arts), "Kathy" (Scrappy Cat alphabet clear stamp)
Paper: Chatter Box, Colorbok, Georgia Pacific

Embellishments: ribbon, twine, button, pearl, lace

Thank you so much for stopping by, everyone!
