SURPRISE Birthday Blog Hop for Lauren Meader!!

Hi friends!  I'm popping in real quick because the MTME gals decided to host a surprise blog hop for our lovely, Lauren Meader!  Today is her birthday and we couldn't let it slip by without sending LOTS of big wishes her way :] 


I used the new Bee-Loved set designed by Catherine Doucette for my card.  I also incorporated the JUGS technique that Andrea selected for challenge #82 - emboss resist. 
Tulips are Lauren's favorite flower so this set was perfect for my project!  I sponged two tones of pink on my tulip petals (Pink Pirouette and Regal Rose) and I sponged Certainly Celery on my stem and leaves. 
It's a little hard to see beneath my vellum layer in the photo, so here's a better shot:
Not much more to it than some triple wrapped and looped ribbon tied off with a butterfly gem and my sentiment embossed in white on top of the vellum layer.  So, be sure to check out the main hop hosted on the MTME blog.  We would love for you to make a card for Lauren and join us on the hop!  You simply need to post your photo on the MTME blog so that everyone can hop along!  Once you're finished hopping, hop on over to Lauren's blog and leave her some birthday love!
