Asha's Birthday Bog Hop! Woot, Woot!!

Hello, and welcome to our SURPRISE Birthday Beach Blog Hop for the lovely Asha!  You should have arrived here from the lovely and talented Judy's blog.  If not, start at the MHKDesigns blog to complete the hop for more chances to WIN!  We are celebrating a very special lady today, and we're doing so by creating beachy birthday cards to wish her many happy returns!

I used the colors in this photo inspiration, and the MHK Eat Your Cake birthday digi set to create this:

I colored the MHK Eat Your Cake digi with Copic markers, then fussy cut.   I added some Wink of Stella glitter pens to the flames. The sentiment, also from the Eat Your Cake set, was cut out with a die from Top Dog Dies. 

I cut the card base out on my Silhouette Cameo using a file I found in the Silhouette Design store.  The music dies are from Spellbinders. 

Thank you so much for joining in our hop to say "Happy Birthday" to a dear friend!  Your next stop on the hop is the talented Lilian.  Enjoy the hop, and eat some birthday cake along the way!
