Candles 'n Confetti Birthday Hop!

We are celebrating a very special someone's birthday today!
Happy Birthday, Jen del Muro!

A few of the Reverse Confetti Crew and 'Fetti Friends are thrilled at the chance to surprise Jen with a celebratory hop in her honor and share birthday inspiration using Reverse Confetti!

The Candles 'n Confetti Birthday Hop started over at Stacey's blog and you should've made your way here by way of Laurie Willison's blog. If not, make sure you start at the beginning of the hop so you don't miss a thing! When you're finished here, you'll be visiting Sarah Gough next.

One more thing ... mark your calendars for August 22-25. Reverse Confetti will be sponsoring a Pretty Pink Posh Cutting Edge blog hop. The hop will include a link-up, and EVERYONE is encouraged to join in the die-cutting fun! More info is posted HERE.

For my card, I decided to use this amazing card of Jen's as my inspiration. I used the same idea with the stitched OH MY STARS border die-cuts and the popped up stars. My star strips were cut from a watercolored panel that was a cast-off from a different project. The thread is a gold metallic thread that I've had for years. I love how it curls on the ends! The sentiment, from CELEBRATE CAKE, is heat embossed in white. To create a kind of confetti look, I spritzed on some white ink (some gold was already on the watercolor scrap) and added some 4mm and 6mm gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I was also inspired by the Cutting Edge Challenge #7, specifically the yellow/orange/pink combo (although my pink is more red), the stripes, and the white on kraft background.
