Happy Birthday Lesley!

It's that time of the year again – a time for confetti, laughter, and, of course, birthday wishes for the incredible Lesley, the creative genius behind Annie's Paper Boutique and Trendy Twine! Lesley's birthday is a special occasion that deserves to be celebrated, and what better way to do it than with a delightful surprise on the Trendy Twine blog?

To mark this festive occasion, I couldn't resist crafting a special card for Lesley. The process was filled with joy and creativity, just like Lesley's vibrant personality. 

Starting with a canvas of pretty floral paper, I decided to create a present-shaped square to serve as the focal point of the card. No creation is complete without the signature touch of Trendy Twine! For this project, I chose Totally Sky and Posy shades to wrap around the present. The result was a combination of colors that complemented each other beautifully. To elevate the design, I strategically placed foam dots behind the present, adding a touch of dimension and visual interest.

Lesley's birthday card needed an extra touch of magic, and what better way to achieve that than with shooting stars? I took three pieces of Totally Sky Trendy Twine and affixed three stars to the end of each piece. The effect was enchanting, creating a whimsical scene as if the stars were dancing around the birthday present. To enhance the celestial theme, foam dots were added for an extra pop of dimension.

I couldn't resist adding big, glittery stars to the card. These sparkling embellishments reflected Lesley's vibrant personality, making the card as dazzling as the birthday girl herself.

I chose a message from the Smile Stamp set. This thoughtful addition completed the card, conveying warm wishes to Lesley on her special day.

Crafting this birthday card for Lesley was not just a creative endeavor; it was a celebration of a wonderful friendship and the joy that Lesley brings to the crafting community. Don't forget to join the celebration by stopping by the Trendy Twine blog and leaving your heartfelt birthday wishes for Lesley. Happy birthday, Lesley – may your day be as bright and beautiful as the creations you inspire!

Cheers to another year of creativity, friendship, and Trendy Twine magic!
