Happy Birthday

Addicted To Stamps is celebrating their 1st Birthday with a blog hop and a card challenge. Guess what their first challenge is.....cake (of course) and/or stitching. I did both on my card and the stitching was even done by hand. I am also entering this card in this week's Pile It On challenge which is Sparkle & Shine. The cupcake patterned paper is very glittery although it doesn't show up in the picture.
The Crazy Challenge and Card Makin Mamas both want to see "Girly" cards so I will enter this card in both of their challenges as well. This card is also being entered into 365 Cards Day 55 - On The Fringes challenge where you had to have atleast 4 different 'fringes' on your card that you made yourself. Aren't edge punches awesome! They help add such dimension to our creations. Lets not forget Simon Says Stamp where the challenge this week is Anything Goes.

Here is the front of my card:

The inside with a good close up of my stitching:

Here is the full view of my card. As you can see, it is another easel card lol.

As it has been a long day and the surgical site on my neck is giving me a lot of pain tonight, I will be back later to list the materials I used.

Thanks for stopping by :)
