Berry Happy Day!!

Getting close to the end of my birthday week!!  Which means my Imaginisce Giveaway is almost ready to be picked as well!  You have until I get around to posting tomorrow to do the instructions in THIS post and be eligible to win the prize!

My first card is covered in berries and cupcakes....can a birthday card get any better then that?  It is based on ICS49 and TPE49. Please note....I will be adding instructions later to this post.  I don't have enough time right now to add them.

"Berry Happy Birthday" supplies:

Rub-ons: Gypsies & Basic Grey
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Button: Doodlebug Designs
Jewel: Westrim Crafts
Pearl: Kaiser Craft
Ink: Clearsnap (Chalk: pink pastel)
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Border Punch: Fiskars

Instructions: Fold berry cardstock in half to make card base, and punch an apron lace border to the bottom. Round the top corners of a block of strawberry paper and ink the edges.  Adhere to the front of the card. Round the upper right corner of a block of dotted paper and ink the edges.  Adhere to the right side of the card. Round the top corners of a block of white doily paper and ink the edges.  Adhere to the top of the card.  Tie ribbon around bottom of the card into a bow.  Accent the top of the bow with a glittery button, a pink heart jewel, and three green pearls.  Add the rub-on journal spot and the rub-on berries directly to the patterned paper on the front of the card.  Attach the chipboard cupcake to the front, and accent with pearls and a strawberry cut from patterned paper.  Add the sentiment to the left side of the cupcake.   

Next up are a couple cards using some older, but still fabulous Glitz product!  This first card is based on Cricut Cardz Challenge #8.

"Birthday Rebel" supplies:

Instructions: Fold kraft cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of a block of houndstooth paper and ink the edges.  Adhere to the bottom of the card.  Apply the rub-on sentiments to the top half of the card.  Tie ribbon around the seam, and top the bow with a jewel star.  Cut a star at 2" from red cardstock using a Cricut and George & Basic Shapes cartridge.  Cut a slit in the right side of the star, and adhere through the ribbon.  Accent the lower right corner of the star with three jewels.

And this one isn't based on any challenge, just a little birdie card I whipped up.  I think it is pretty adorable!
