"It's Your Birthday" Card and Bottle Swap Goodies

Good Morning Blogging buddies!
I am back in the swing of things, trying to get my cards made and replenish some of the cards I have used in the past few days. I really need to make some more Easter Cards as well...so many projects so little time to get them all done :)

Here is a birthday card I just finished. I used the Bargello technique that I found on Splitcoaststamper. I have added the link here for the tutorial. It is another great way to use up scraps...which like me I am sure we all have tons!
Recipe for this card is:

Cricut Cartridge--Celebrations for the cupcake
Paper- Misc Scraps
Sentiment- stamp from Fiskars Birthday Cheer
Twine- from local stamp store
Adhesives- Foam dots, ATG gun, liquid adhesive
Stickles- multi colors for cupcake and candle
Cuttlebug- herringbone-for cupcake holder, swiss dots for cupcake

Entering into the following Challenges:
Birthday Sundaes--Anything Goes

Just wanted to share the other bunch of goodies I received for the bottle swap I participated in. It is so much fun to give and receive goodies in the mail and I definitely want to do this again! I cant wait to create something with these :)
