Hi all! Welcome to another edition of From Courtney's Closet, where I make a card inspired by one of my daughter's outfits! But before I get to that, I would like to wish a GREAT BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Joy from Eclectic Paperie!! Her good buddy Cambria is throwing a big cyber birthday bash for her, and when she asked me to join in of course I said YES!! The added bonus was that I got to preview this ADORABLE new Our Craft Lounge set, Hangin' Loose with Kona, which is an eP exclusive! You can only purchase him here! Isn't he adorable!? Joy happens to adore him, so a whole bunch of us have made birthday cards for her using this cute set. Hop on over to Cami's blog to see the whole list of peeps you can visit!! Well today also happens to be Thursday, so I needed to make my birthday card based on one of Courtney's outfits!! I just love this one - I found it this past weekend on clearance at Old Navy. I love dressing my sweetie in blue because it really makes her blue eyes shine! I wanted to use striped DP on the card to match the background of her shirt, but I didn't have any - so I just cut out strips of Tempting Turquoise and attached them to a Cool Carribean panel. If you can't tell in the photo, the pink backing to the sentiment is a piece of wide grosgrain ribbon. And I like how the rhinestone flourish hints at a wave sweet little Kona may be about to ride. I hope Joy likes my card! And I hope you find some inspiration from Courtney's outfit! If you do, and you make a card, leave me a comment back here with your link so I can take a peak! Unfortunately Mr. Linky isn't working for me anymore - that site is going through major server issues so I'm one of the lucky blogs to have it disabled. Grrr. So it's back to doing it the old-fashioned way! And just a reminder, last week's contest is still open for another week, so it's not too late to get in on that! If you play this week I'll also put you in the drawing for the free set. Alrighty then - thanks for stopping by today!!
