For my project today I am sharing the birthday card I made and sent to Bobbi Jo.  Today actually happens to be my birthday too so I will be celebrating along with Bobbi Jo this weekend.  My card  is a Twisted Easel Card using the 7 Gypsies Lillie Paper.  The frame for the stamp is cut from Elegant Edges at 3.25, 3.50 and 3.75 page 61 oblong cut.  The rolled roses are cut from  Art Philosophy at 2.75 inches and pearls are added to the center.  All the cuts are inked with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink. Leaves for flowers were punched with a MS punch.  Vintage ribbon and gems from stash.

                                                                    Closeup of roses
Closeup of card bottom with inking and pears.  This is pop dotted so it will keep card in easel position.  


For my blog candy I will be giving one $10 gift card to either Michaels or Joanns (your choice) for the three days of blog hops I am participating in for the month of March.  All comments left March 10 and 11th for Bobbi Jo's Birthday Blog Hop and for the Memories in Time Easter Blog Hop that I am participating in on March 24th will be put in a random drawing.  So if you comment each of these three days you will have three chances to win.  I would also appreciate if you are a follower.

Also March 10th is the last day to become a new follower or to send a new follower to my blog for my birthday give away.  I have passed the 500 blog followers goal so will be selecting 3 winners as stated at the top of my banner.



Thank you for checking out my project. I hope that you will become a follower of http://sweetsassydiva.com/ and leave a comment. The fun doesn't end here though so be sure to hop on over to my dear creative  friend

Be sure to also check back tomorrow for some more celebration and more chances to win! My project for tomorrow will be a small gift for Bobbi Jo that will match her card.
