SHINE with Bestie {Guest Designer over at Scrapbook Stamp Society)

 {Its Your Day to Shine}

Thank you so much for having me.
This is a girly Birthday Card using a super cute MY BESTIES image
which you can purchase here

  The brads and design papers are from my stash. The  flowers have been created with flower punches.  The crochet flower centers has once again been made for me by a special friend.  The heart embellishments are also from my stash.  The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.  I have used dry chalks to chalk around the image and on the sentiment.
