Jenny's Big Birthday/Blogaversary Blog Hop!

      ***If you are looking for the Think Spring Blog Hop Click HERE***

Hi all and welcome to Jenny's birthday/Blogaversary Blog hop!!
It is so exciting to be a part of Jenny's celebration, her Dt Family Friday is the first I was on and I love being a part of such a wonderful group of talented women!!

If you came from the totally Fabulous Christel @ Scrappin Sista, then yup you are in the right place!! If you just stumbled upon my blog and would like to start at the beggining with our AWESOME hostess then click HERE to go to Jenny's blog! You don't want to miss a single amazing project or some yummy blog candy!!

Ok so on to my project!!Jenny told us to use the color red and make it a Birthday theme so I decided to make this Birthday Card ( it is for my sister Gena who celebrated her 19th birthday on Tuesday and is a Twihard lol), but don't worry Jenny I made one for you too!! :)

Ok so here is the card and the envelope (isn't Edward adorable!!)
Here is the card up close ( you can't
really see in the pic but he has glitter on his face so he sparkles)
Here is a close up of this cutie!
Sideways view I colored two images and cut out the head of one and used foam squares to make the head pop out a little to give it dimension. I also used foam squares behind Edward to make him pop off the card.  
Doesn't that Red paper add a little pop to it!
I couldn't find a sentiment to go with this card so I made one on
 my computer using Microsoft word.I think it is the
perfect sentiment for this card!
What do you think?? I am really loving the greeting farms stamps and my prismacolor pencils!! I love coloring LOL!! I know my sister is going to love her card she is the ultimate Fanpire hehe!!
Oh and where is my cricut cut you ask?? I cut the card base and the rectangle behind my digi and for the inside using my go to Cartridge George !!

Materials Used:
  • George Cart
  • The Greeting Farm - Dressy Edward Digi
  • DCWV Immortal Love Paper Stack
  • Black Cardstock
  • Sakura White Gel Pen
  • Handmade paper- the red paper that kinda looks furry lol ( can't remember the brand)
  • Happy Birthday Sentiment ( TPC Studio Whimsy Greetings)
  • Team Edward and Fanpire stamps from Artful Inkables Fictionally Inspired Stamp set
  • Prismacolor pencils in: Crimson Red, Black, Grey, Goldenrod and Sienna Brown
  • Diamond Stickles for the Sparkle on his Face
  • The inside Sentiment was created by Yours truly on my trusty Laptop :)
Ok so do you want some yummy Blog candy today?? Say I do I do lol..
Well since I used a Greeting Farm stamp I have decided to give away just that!! A Stamp of your choice! ( If you win you can choose any of the single stamps from their website)
To win just Leave a Comment. I will Announce the winner on Tuesday! Ok now it is time to get your hop on!! Click on the pic to go to the next blog which is the super talented
 Ruthie from September Ninth!!
