Birthday Wishes - Birthday Blog Hop for Lilypad Cards!

Welcome to the Lilypad Cards First Birthday blog hop! You should have just been at Ashley's blog.


There are three prize packages with a total retail value of over $300! These prizes will be awarded by random draw. There are two ways to be eligible for the prize drawings. You can “like” us on Facebook, but if you do not have a Facebook account, you can also be eligible for the drawings by leaving a comment on the Lily Pad Cards blog. To better your chances even more, leave comments on the other blogs participating in the hop. For each comment you leave, you'll get your name entered again! (but only one comment per blog, please.) You have a whole week to get hopping - make sure you leave all your comments by the deadline - Sunday, April 8 at 12pm EST.


To make this celebratory card I used some scraps from the Inque Boutique 'Isn't it Romantic'  6x6 paper pad. I cut the green layer about an 1/8" wider than the paisley hearts layer. After adhering the paisley panel to the green layer I poked holes along the edges using my ruler and piercing tool.


I then used a white gel pen between the holes to give the illusion of stitching. The sentiment is from Kaisercraft's 'Birthday' mini stamp set which was stamped in Worn Lipstick distress ink.

Thanks for stopping by! The next stop on the hop is Vera!

Remember, if you hit a bad link, you can always go back to Lily Pad to view the master list of blog links. Please report any bad links to aris@inlinkz.com.

Hope you get a change to hop along!
Bye for now!
