Birthday Passionette

Hello there and woohoo is Friday!!!! before I go anywhere with this post I want to thank you all for your lovely comments and emails I had about my decision, I really appreciate you taking the time and grateful for all your well wishes. I also need to thank you for your comments on Kate’s birthday card, I had many emails about the roses and I have decided to shoot a video, a). because I am long overdue one and b). because it will be easier to explain, a visual is always better. So I am planning to shoot it tonight (after work), edit it and post it tomorrow or maybe first thing on Sunday, thank you for being patient with this.
Well guess what? Another Passionette celebrates her happy day today!! Is Erika !!! Me and Erika have known each other for years and she transitioned from being my best customer to being my downline. Erika loves colour purple so I had to push myself as I find this colour the hardest to work with. I chose a combo of Concord Crush and River Rock.

the stamp image is the level 1 hostess set Because I care, I have to say this has been such a popular set this year with my hostesses, the hydrangea head is gorgeous. I coloured it with a mixture of Baja Breeze, Elegant Eggplant and river rock. I have also added a dot of white signo pen in the centre of the tiny flowers maybe you can see it better in this picture

I added half of a top note shape behind the flower panel in baja breeze just to tie the colouring from the flower really. The stripy river rock  layer comes from the designer paper stack and I added Erika’s monogram using the fabulous Broadsheet alpha. Concord crush ribbon matches the main panel of designer paper and tiny rhinestones have been added for extra sparkle.
Erika hope your day is filled with joy and see you again very soon.
Right back to work for me now, enjoy your day and see you next time.
Till then big hugs xx
