My Creative Time ~ "Birthday Bash - BLOG HOP"

Hello everyone!  Surprise!  Surprise!  Today is Emma's birthday, so we are having a "Birthday Bash - Blog Hop"!  You should have arrived here from the super talented Amy's blog.  If not, then make sure you head back to My Creative Time, so that you can start at the beginning...you don't want to miss a thing!

Here is the birthday card that I made for Emma:


Last month when I went to the Vendor Fair at the CK Convention in Mesa, I found these super fun new embellishments.  Straws!  They came in several different colors and patterns...so of course you know I had to get the rainbow!!!  ;)  I purchased mine from a company called Cre8tive Artz.  They are actually the size of regular drinking straws, but made of a heavier material.  To give you an idea of size, the straws on my card are actually cut almost in half from the original size.  Aren't they so much fun???


For the flames, I had some candle stickers from Jolee's Boutique and I actually cut the flames off to use them here.  The fun gingham bow is made with Celebrate It ~ 360 ribbon.  At the bottom, you can see that I also added some red ric rac from my stash.


The "Happy Birthday" & "Make a wish..." sentiments are from the MCT ~ Polka Dot Surprise stamp set. The ink is black ~ Ranger Archival Ink.  And for an extra touch, I added yellow and red Recollections ~ Pearls. The patterned paper in the background is from the Simple Stories ~ Snap, Just the Basics collection.  And the yellow and black cardstock are from Recollections.


I just love how this turned out!  I hope Emma likes it too!
