Happy Birthday Card and Blog Award Thanks!

CLICK HERE TO ENTER MY 500 FOLLOWER CRICUT CART GIVEAWAY!

Happy Thursday, bloggers and welcome to my new followers! Thank you for following me and thanks to my old followers as well - I appreciate you all so much! I'm over 500 - yay! I have not had much time to craft this week. I miss my craft room:( I managed to sneak in there for a little while today and tried to make one card fit a few challenges.
For this card, I used the GAB sketch (click HERE to check it out).The green backgound paper is from My Mind's Eye. I used a Martha Stewart punch and I embossed the white cardstock with the Cuttlebug happy birthday folder. The flowers are from Picturesque (the cart I'm giving away!) I used my brand new Amy Chomas glitter pens that I won from Kristal at Getting Cricky and wow, are they fun to play with! I used the orange pen to draw the flowers and added crystals with my iRock. The happy birthday is a stamp and I used Colorbox ink to stamp it and ink the edges of all the white paper. I attached the flowers and sentiment with foam dots. The green ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
I also want to sincerely thank three amazing blogger friends for passing along the Best Friend Blogger award to me! Thank you so much Jessica of Jessica's Craft Shaque, Nita of Nita Notes and Kelly of Kelly's Crafty Life! I love visiting each of these three awesome crafters daily! Not only are their projects so creative and inspiring, but they are such wonderful friends :) Please stop by their blogs to see their fabulous work...I promise you won't be disappointed!
Thanks again Jessica, Nita and Kelly! And thank you for stopping by! Don't forget to enter my blog candy giveaway and have a great evening :D
