BC204 Spring Flowers and a Gift for you.

Happy Friday! - So are you ready for Spring!!! I know I am.
One of my favorite things about Spring is that I was born on the 1st Day of Spring (March 20) so yep, I have a birthday coming up. I had not planned to join in on the Bloggers Challenge this week but then I saw the theme was Spring Flowers and well how could I not participate. So I whipped up this little number this morning in between cleaning up puppy poo and pee (training not going so well).
I decided to use this weeks Mojo Monday sketch for my card

So now I've covered 2 different challenge and would you believe a "third" challenge since I'm also entering this in for the Forgotton Stamp Friday challenge over on Jessie's blog. This is my first time doing her challenge.
Here is a "close-up" of the flowers so you can see the sparkle from the glitter better.



So here are the details of the card:
Stamps: Whimsical Potted Tulips-Great Impressions and
En Francais-SU. I bought the little potted tulip stamp over a year ago and it had yet to see ink (sad but true). The background stamp is also one that I haven't used in quite some time so it was good to dust it off (actually I didn't dust it off) but you know what I mean.
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and SU Basic Gray
Copic Markers
Card Stock: Buckaroo Blue and Regal Rose (retired SU), Pretty in Pink, Whisper White.
Designer Paper, Floral Print is from My Minds Eye-Penny Lane line.
Lime Panel (source unknown).
Circle and Scallop Circle Nestabilitie Dies
Light Pink Dotted Ribbon - May Arts
Glitter: Crystal - Art Institute
Foam Mounting Tape.



So now here's the deal...Since it's my Birthday Sunday I am giving away a $25 Gift Certificate to "your" favorite On-Line store. That means if your name is drawn then you will get to pick out the store you want the Gift Certificate from. This will run from Today(18th) through next Friday 10:00 pm PST (25th) and the winner will be announced on Sunday 27th.
All you need to do is comment here and let me know you are in the running. Oh and it wouldn't hurt to wish me a Happy birthday on Sunday either. That's it, easy peasy!

I may or may not be posting cards in the next few weeks depending on how things go. I'm in need of some time to regroup, reoranize and just refresh a little. Stick with me though as I'll be back.
