Happy Birthday LeAnne!

This week at Merry Monday the challenge is not a Christmas card. This week
the challenge is Anything Goes Birthday in honor of LeAnne Pugliese who is
celebrating  her birthday this week.

Happy Birthday LeAnne!!

I combined the birthday challenge with the Simon Says Emboss It challenge...

I used a really cute circle embossing folder for the background and then swiped the
versamark ink pad across it purposely not covering the whole thing. I then used
some bridal white embossing powder to achieve the shiny look.

...and the CAS-ual Fridays TIC-TAC-TOE challenge. For this card I went 
diagonal - I used dots, white and sequins.

They're so many possibilities with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge that I may just
have to play some more.

I'm also submitting this to Cards in Envy for their Happy Birthday To You challenge.

card stock: whisper white, cherry cobbler
stamp set: you said it sister (fresh squeezed stamps)
digi image: found on pinterest
belndabilities: cherry cobbler, daffodil delight, pumpkin pie
ink: memento black, versamark
big shot: circles EF (cuttlebug)
embellishments: bridal white EP (?), sequins (craft medley)

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!
