Happy Birthday!!!

Tonight's 4th challenge for Jacksonbelle's DT was to make a card or project in celebration of the birth of a new year and for Lindsey's(the owner of Jacksonbelle Embellishments) Birthday on January 4th! So here are my projects!

This first one is a Clear Scraps Acrylic Star Album which I made into a card. I used some Fancy Pants papers, a chipboard star, a button, a Basic Grey Rub-On, ribbon and some ink on the edges. Both the Fancy Pants Papers and Basic Grey Rub-Ons can be purchased over at the Jacksonbelle Store.

And this last project is a Birthdy Party Hat Card and a Birthday Cupcake Box. I used some more yummy October Afternoon Papers, Prima Flowers, ribbon, hemp cord, a button, mini pearls, White pom-pom trim, a little satin box and of course a real candle!


Happy Birthday Lindsey! You rock girl!!









And last but not least, the Winner of my last blog candy for 2008 is...........
