Birthday Bash!

Yay it's birthday time again - and I love birthdays (not too keen on the another year older malarkey, but love the cards and gifts that come with the day and getting to see all my friends and family)!

As you probably know from my earlier posts this week, we're celebrating two birthdays - Stamping Dragon Designs is one and it's creator Janette is also having a birthday. To mark the occasion we've got a week of fun and games. If you've missed my post announcing the start of the fun worry not, you still have plenty of time to join in with the fun! Simply pop over to Sammi's blog where she has a competition to name a gorgeous paper pack, then continue on to Tams blog where she has her now legendary cheesy balls!! Once you've done that stop by at  Beth's blog where she is hosting a special birthday card challenge with a fantastic prize for the winner, and as if that wasn't enough we have a really special event planned for the 28th (there could be lots of candy involved!!), so be sure to pop on here or over to Janette's blog on the day for all the details.

Oh and in all my excitement I almost forgot to show you the card I made!  

I've used Rupert's Birthday from Dragon's Lair Designs which is currently on offer for an amazing $0.99. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and then stickled and Glossy Accented. I've cut the image out and used silicone glue to mount it on a circle of Core-dinations Gemstones. The edge of the circle and the sentiment have been inked with Distress Inks.

The flowers have been punched, embossed and coloured with Promarkers and then given a burst of Glimmer Mist.
