HERE, I'm stop number 10 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Birthday cards and paper projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track!
I felt there was no better way to round out the year than that of a  Christmas themed Birthday card “all tied up” and displayed on my Christmas tree ~
          009
It’s a trifold card featuring one of the Designer Frames mounted with an image from the Bells & Boughs stamp set.  Together they are decked out in Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Whisper White with a splash of gold. 
Looking closer, you can see that a few punched hearts replaced some of the “berries”.  The image was stamped twice.  Once on Whisper White and then again on Old Olive, both times using Always Artichoke Ink. The Old Olive leaves were then snipped out and placed at the corresponding places of the leaves stamped onto the Whisper White.

You have to untie the ribbon to be able to open up the card to view the inside.
              004
              002
A single heart rests in the middle of the leaves.
Hop along for more inspiring ideas from the very talented Julie Trevett her blog can be found by clicking HERE, stop number 11 on the December Pals Hop!
Thanks for "hopping" by!
