Happy Birthday KELLIE!!!!


Today the JustRite Girls are celebrating the birthday of our amazing Design Team Coordinator - Kellie!!!  Not only does she look after us incredibly well and keep us organised, she is one of the loveliest people you'll ever meet - we are SO LUCKY to have her!!!  So Kellie, a huge Happy Birthday today and may you be blessed with a wonderful year ahead!!  {{{BIG HUGS}}}

You can find Kellie's Blog HERE if you'd like to pop over and leave a little Birthday Love!!  :)

Today I've decided to use a few of the JustRite products in Kellie's honour :) - Beautiful Day (for the lilies), Elegant Frames (for the frame and the sentiment inside), Nested Frames Dies (to cut the frame and the accent behind the lilies), Nested Sentiment Dies (for the inside sentiment) and of course Copic Markers!

I started with a base of aqua bazzill and layered with white and some MME Mabel DP (two patterns) - I just can't seem to stop using this fabulous paper!!!  :)  Across the join I've added some white lace and topped with white satin ribbon.  I then created a border using the Martha Stewart Deco Fan punch out of aqua bazzill.  I stamped the large frame from Elegant Frames in Memento Bamboo Leaves and cut it out using Nested Frames Dies and then used another die from the same set to create the aqua accent panel.  The lilies are from Beautiful Day and have been stamped on X-press It Blending Card in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics (YR12, YR16, YR18, YG11, YG13, YG17).  Then I cut it out using Petite Ovals Large, matted with Pumpkin Pie cut with the matching Scallop Oval.  I then popped the entire panel up on foam tape.  To finish I added a white satin bow and some Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the corners.
I then added a little decorating to the inside by adding a strip of MME Mabel DP across the bottom and then stamped the sentiment from Elegant Frames in Memento Tuxedo Black onto white and cutting it out using Nested Sentiment Dies (and I added a little airbrushing with YR12.)
