Happy Birthday, Elizabeth!

Hello Everyone ~ Today is a very special day at the a2z Scrapbooking Supplies Blog! We are sending special Birthday Wishes to Elizabeth, owner and creator, and of course a girl with a love for all things “Hero Arts”! We would love it if you have a chance to stop by and say hello!

As a Guest DT gal for the month of May, I’ve created this card in honor of Elizabeth’s birthday using some of my favorite Hero Arts stamps and dies ~ I embossed the Butterfly on vellum with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder, die cut and colored it using Hero Arts Water Color Wheel Paints. I tucked in a little silver thread, added wire wings, and Medium Accent Pearls, then mounted it to a scalloped rectangle. Then, I stamped the sentiment with Black Dye Ink from the Hero Arts stamp set Perfect Day, which is currently sold out in the store, but may be special ordered by clicking on the 'Request Custom Order’ tab on the sidebar, and placed everything on to Lilac Layering Papers.

If you’re eager to get your hands on some of the newest Hero Arts products from the 2014 Catalog, as well as some of the 'classics’ (as I am), please feel free to use the discount code Mayflowers for 10%OFF your purchase of $25 or more on your total order (excluding shipping) at the a2zScrapbooking Store.

And, don’t forget, you have until the 31st to link up your project to the Linky Party (for the theme 'How Does Your Garden Grow') for your chance to win a $25. Gift Voucher in the a2zscrapbooking Store! Good luck, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Birthday, Elizabeth! I hope all of your birthday wishes come true!

Hello Barb! Had no idea you had a blog. Thank you so much for stopping by my FLICKR photostream as well as my blog and leaving such encouraging comments. I feel like such a heel not commenting on your work. I will do a better job. Flickr was giving me so much trouble recently that I HAD to make that leap into BLOGLAND myself.

LOVE this butterfly with the watercolor wings so soft and lovely!...Got to LOVE that string bling too!
