PNW Birthday Buddies - Birthday Blog Hop - Happy Birthday Laura!

I'm happily a part of a group of friends that are all from the Pacific Northwest that celebrate each other birthdays!  Today we're celebrating the lovely Laura Norris:  You should have arrived here from the awesome Toni's blog!  If not, start at the beginning which is the Birthday Hostess with the Mostess, Tonya!

I decided to do a tropical theme birthday card for Laura.  She was just recently in Hawaii and who doesn't love Hawaii?

I combined the Essentials by Ellen - Stay Golden with My Favorite Things - Polynesian Paradise.  I love that sentiment from the Stay Golden set.  Do you spy her Golden Pineapple crown?  It's been stamped in Delicata Gold.

Here's the interior, a sentiment from the Polynesian Paradise set:

So Laura and I are weekly walking buddies!  That sentiment is perfect-o!

Laura, I hope you're enjoying the most fabulous Birthday Weekend.  You are the sweetest friend!

My card was inspired by the Ellen Hutson LLC Pin-Sights Challenge:

I was inspired by the colors and the block with the pink + yellow reminded me of tropical goodness!

Next up is the lovely Lisa Lara!

Here's the full listing in case you get lost along the way:
