Happy Birthday Chriss!

November is a popular month for birthdays in this community! Today it's Chriss' birthday! She is a fellow Canadian (living in the US) and we've become even better friends since she joined me on the Muse: ChristmasVisions team earlier this year.

I love to CASE cards and a birthday is a perfect occasion to explore a friend's blog and remind yourself of all the cards you loved! I chose this card that Chriss made last month and used it as my inspiration:

I started with a 4x4 white panel and cut an MFT pierced circle frame out of it. I sponged it in warm, autumn colours and inlaid it (and the centre white circle) back into the panel before cutting the PTI "celebrate" out of it. I also cut a brown celebrate and inlaid that into the panel as well. I used the star dies from MFT's Blue Prints #25 in copper mirror card for embellishment.

As usual (especially with birthdays at the beginning of the month), this card is in the mail and will likely not land until a day or two after Chriss' birthday, but hey, it's good to keep celebrating, right?

Happy Birthday Chriss - I hope you have a wonderful day surrounded by friends, family and love!
