It's my Birthday Blog Hop 12-15 March 2011 | Card #1

Welcome to Jennifer Restivo's It's My Birthday Blog Hop! This celebration of Jennifer's birth runs from Saturday March 12-15th! There are 40 crafters with lots of cards to look at! Some will be showing more than one project during the hop, including me, so be sure to check back for new inspiration!
If you came to this hop from Laura's blog then you're in the right spot! If you wish to start from the beginning hop over to here.

My 1st card for this birthday celebration uses a cute House Mouse stamp and wonderful Paper Studio Birthday Extravaganza  Paper Stack and Bazzill Basics Cardstock.  I colored the stamped image with prismacolors and used the blending pencil to blend the colors. I used the Quickie Pen Glue to add ultrafine glitter touches to the flowers. A Stampin' Up Birthday sentiment and EK Success Circle Punch created the Happy Birthday wish. Basic Grey Bling matched the colors of the paper and of the Stampin Up Soft Suede ink that I used when distressing the edges of the stamped image.
I hope you enjoy! Thank you for looking!
Be sure to check below if you get lost on the hop. Lucy's blog is next on the list! Hop on over there to see her wonderful birthday creations!

In honor of Jennifer's Birthday I am offering a $15 gift e-certificate to my favorite paper crafty store cutnpastememories.com! To enter the drawing, leave a comment and your email below. Please become a follower if you like what you see!

  31. Oh Leslie - I love this card! Those Mouse House stamps are so precious - I have been so tempted to buy some even though I am on a spending freeze :) I love the coloring and the background papers and the distressing - well just everything :) I am already a follower of your lovely blog and loving every minute I spend here.
