Surprise!!! Happy Birthday, Julie Blog Hop!

Today a bunch of us are participating in a Happy Birthday Blog Hop for one of the sweetest people I have the good fortune to know--Julie Koerber. Julie is the Coordinator for Flourishes Senior Design Team, on which I am most honored to be. But Julie is more that that. Julie keeps all of us on all of the Flourishes teams straight and is so stinkin' creative she blows me away!!! Happy Birthday, sweet Julie! Wishing you love, happiness, and lots of dessert on your special day!

For my card for her today, I chose to use the Birthday Pennant set along with the coordinating Spellbinders Nested Pennant dies. I stamped the rainbow of pennants on Classic White card stock, cut them out, and hung them on some baker's twine. PLUS, I used the recent Flourishes Timeless Tuesday technique challenge, Double Embossing. First time I've tried it and I love how it turned out. I thought this little label die was perfect for this sentiment and the sentiment was perfect for this SURPRISE blog hop :) I think that otherwise my card is pretty self explanatory.

Here's the inside with another sentiment. 

Now you'll want to hop around to see what everyone else has for our Julie.
