Happy Birthday, Monica!

 It's a Surprise Birthday Hop for Monica Hunter! Monica is the owner of Hambo Stamps and tomorrow is her birthday. A few of us got together and decided to throw a little surprise party for her, and we would like you to join us! If you arrived here via Jenn Cochran's blog (the beginning of this blog hop), you are in the right place.  Every birthday has to have presents, and this one has one for you! One random hopper that completes the hop will receive a Hambo Birthday surprise! The winner will be announced at the Hambo Hoedown on Wednesday, August 17.

My project was made using the Hambo Mushrooms (#2902) on the outside and Real Fun-Gal (#2909) sentiment on the inside.  I stamped my image with Jet Black Stazon ink colored with an aquapainter and dye inks.  I went around the outline of the image with a Sakura JellyRoll Clear Star pen for a little shimmer.  I added some Dot Sparkerlers in silver by Stampendous to the mushrooms.
