Pearl-fect Birthday

 YAY!!! 2nd. post in 1 day but its kind of not finished as I could not take the photo of inside cos while taking photo, it became dark outside due to rain. Anyway, I will post it later. I also want to share some happy news which I got yesterday and today.
I made this card for the challenges at:
Lawnscaping challenge (don't forget the inside)
Wee Memories summer time challenge, which reminds me of beach
MoxieFab Stamp it!
Edited- Forgot to link before, since it was a month long challenge and it was due to be posted by today in my calender.
Jay Gee's photo inspiration




 For my card, I distressed the background with blue distress inks and used perfect pearl spritzt. Then I stamped some bubbles and embossed a part of it using holographic embossing powder. I used Kraft paer as sand. Now stamped and cut the shell, adhered it using some 3d foam on the upper part. In the center adhered different colors of pearls.

I wrote the sentiment myself and used some of my favorite twine for the banner.

I tried to take photo of inside but couldnt get a nice one as it was pretty bad weather today. Will try to take a nice one again tomorrow.


Well here I got little creative and thought out of the box (love it, when my little brain works;)I made the pennants with the shell stamp. I made the treasure box using the Hay from farm critters and do you see the lock...its made with the Cow bell;) Hope you like it. I really love these stamps, great quality and cute images.

Now on to some happy news sharing:
My card won at the Young Crafter Unite Blog hop and was Britta's top choice here. Thanks Britta and Marie.
This card won me some Penny Black stamps ;) at Copic Creations.
My card was featured at Penny Black Stamp blog Flickr Friday feature. YAY!!!
I was one of the V.I.P at the CAS-ual friday challenge#8:))
Now about my dreams coming true:
I am going to get published in CARDS magazine idea book- December 2011
I got happy mail yesterday from Papercrafts as I will have a card in the Jan/ Feb.2012 issue

Thanks for being here friends and leaving your love. I am so lucky to be part of the blogging world and my new blogging friends from different part of the World.
