Happy Birthday, Shimmerz!

Welcome to the Shimmerz Birthday Blog Hop, DEAR friends!

I have created a DEAR birthday card today with lots of Shimmerz products on it. Here, take a peek:



Let's go a little closer to really see it:



WOW, right?! Who wouldn't love to get a bright, cheerful birthday card like this? I used Mellow Yellow on the basket, Sunny on the daisy centers and Celery on the leaves (all Shimmerz). Then, for the background layer, I used Baby's Breath Spritz. I was so pleased with all the shine these brought to the image.

Thanks so much for hopping by to celebrate this DEAR occasion. You'll want to follow the hop to Jennifer Love's blog to see what DEAR design she came up with to show you!

Be well,



P.S. - In case you hadn't figured it out yet, the word you're looking for here is DEAR. ;)
