~~It's a Birthday Celebration~~

Morning Bloggers!
I am so excited for today....first I am attending the CKC here and leaving in a few minutes!
This is my first scrap booking convention and I cant wait to see it all!!
I am hoping to come back with lots of goodies to share later along with announcing my 300 Follower Blog Candy winner. Since I surpassed 400 followers I will be adding to this bunch of yummies. You will all find out what later as well :)
Secondly as I just said I surpassed 400 followers...and I did say more was being added...Yipee to the lucky winner!! But you all have to wait until later to find out who that is!

I do have a card to share for today...
This was put together for a few challenges. I just love making and entering these challenges. Not for the prizes (even though they are great if you win) but just to try new things and create with a new twist!
This card is being entered into the following Challenges:
Peachy Keen Stamps~ Sketch  Challenge #54
Celebrate the Occasion~ #18 birthday with a Party Hat
Scrappy Moms Stamps~ Sweet Treats

My card is the standard A2 size
I used kraft cardstock for the base and paper from K&Company's Confetti Stack.
The party hat is cut from the Celebrations cartridge at 4". I used both the shadow and layer but hid the circle cuts so I could add my peachy keen face :)
My sentiment is a fiskar's birthday stamp and I used my black gel pen for some doodling as well as my gold shadow gel pens for the hat. The really cool thing about these gel pens is they do just that...leave the color as a shadow and pop the gold on top. Not sure how well the picture show it but it looks really cool.

So thanks for stopping by...make sure you come back later for the winner announcement and to see my convention snags!

Have a Great day!!
