Happy 80th Birthday Elena - Blog Hop

Hi everyone, 

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know! 

Today, alongside the other Rainbow Card Challenge Design Team members, I'm celebrating the 80th birthday of teammie, Elena with a blog hop!  Here's the card I sent her on behalf of all the team, including Mynn and Mary Ellen, who are unfortunately unable to take part today...

As you can see, I've used both of Elena's favorite colors, sapphire and burgundy, in my creation which also echoes my DT card for this month's challenge!

Card: Unbranded white, Clarity's clear parchment and Rainbow River DP
Groovi Plates: Nested Scallop Squares, Universal Framer (alphabet), and Tina's Floral Layering Rectangles
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing, perforating, and cutting tools, Perga liner pens, and pearls from my stash

Now, please hop along, finishing with Elena's latest DP post, where we'd love you to leave her some birthday love too!

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then,


  1. This is beautiful, love the design. Happy Birthday to Elena.

  3. Wow Em, I enlarged this to see all the details and it is amazing!

  4. This card is so beautiful, Em! I love those dainty flowers.

  5. Em what a pretty card! Elena is going to love it!

  6. Em... Now that I have recovered from my shock at having my birthday announced to the world... I can begin to write thank you notes to the team. I first received your card and I was taken aback at the fact that you knew it was my 80th!!! At that point I thought you were going to kick me off the team!!! Then I realized you did a blog hop and had every teammie send me a card!!! WOW!!! What unexpected JOY!!! I have never received so many cards in my whole life!!! THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!! Best Birthday I ever had!!!
    (Yes, I really do love your card... one of these days I hope to understand how you make them)

  7. You are so lovely to organise a blog hop for Elena's birthday Em. I've just read her message and I think there's something in my eye...! Hugs, Vicky xx

  8. Stunning card, Em ! I’m always impressed with your gorgeous creations. It was such a lovely idea to organise this blog hop ! xx

  9. I am sure she so enjoyed this beautiful creation you made for her, pretty flowers and love how they are all swirling around!!


I love to read your comments. Thanks for taking time to leave them!
