A Surprise Birthday Bloghop for Lesley!

Surprise Lesley!  and a Happy Birthday!  This is a surprise Birthday Blog Hop for Lesley of the Paper Players! Lesley is such a wonderful crafter and inspiration to us all!  I have been on other design teams in the past, but the Paper Players team is by far the friendliest, most supportive and fun bunch!  Lesley is the best and I am so happy they have given me the opportunity to join them this summer...and help celebrate Lesley's birthday!

I decided to go with an elegant card so such a thoughtful lady!  I used the new DSP, Mocha Morning as the background, and layered one of the flowers from Posy Punch on top.  Pearls make the perfect accent for this color combination!

Inside is simple! Hope you like it, Lesley!

Please stop by Lesley's blog at Always Playing with Paper and leave her some birthday wishes!
