Princess Birthday Hop!

Today is a special day for the Flourishes Family to celebrate our Birthday Girl - Julie Koerber!  And Julie is definitely worth celebrating!  She’s the right hand on so many levels of what’s beautiful about Flourishes, and we’re so grateful for her and blessed to also call this lovely lady friend.  

This summer a number of the Flourishes Senior Design Team girls gathered for a weekend in Yellowstone National Park.  It was a fantastic time of fun!  One of the great things some of the girls did was go Whitewater Rafting.  Because there were family members along, Julie graciously said she’d sit in the middle of the raft so the kids could get the most out of the experience.  The raft guide however thought that would be a fun opportunity to tease Julie about her “Princess" status.  She gracefully took it and we love to tease her about it - and so the idea for this Princess Birthday Hop was born!  Julie we love you and your fun, spunky spirit, and also the warmth and grace you live your life with!  Happy Birthday from all of us at Flourishes!  

We invite you to hop along today with many of our Flourishes Family to see our pretty Princess and Birthday inspiration, and join in on our wishes for Julie!

Julie, my dear, sweet friend - Happy Birthday!!  May today bring you joy and laughter and the year ahead be filled with fun and adventures!!

I've used Flourishes' Make a Wish stamp set and I've coloured it with Copics using the Flourishes' Creamy Collection, Lenten Rose Collection, Sunflower and Candy Pink Collections.  The image has been cut with Small Circle Nestabilities and matted with pink and vanilla card cut with Captivating Squares Nestabilities.  The sentiment has been stamped in Tuxedo Black and cut with 5x7 Detailed Scallops Nestabilities.  While still in the die, I've added a little colour with Copic E50.  Add plenty of pink, pretty paper and a bit of bling and you have a card fit for a Princess!!  :)

Stamps - Make a Wish (Flourishes)
Paper - Blending Card, Vintage Pink and Mauve Ice Bazzill, Very Vanilla, FabScraps Chic Pink DP

Oh, Wow, this really is fit for a princess! I love all the feminine paper and pretty bling, and your coloring on the shoes is fantastic! I never think of them as anything but pink, but they look even better in yellow.
