Birthday Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us on My Cricut Craft Room's Birthday Blog Hop! You should have started at Erica's blog. If you just stumbled on my blog, please go back to My Cricut Craft Room- the very beginning! Today I made a card to share with you.
   
I made this card for Colin. His mom created a Facebook page to help Colin, her disabled son, celebrate his 11th birthday. She has over 2 million likes!! How amazing is that?! His birthday was March 9th so I made this card a head of time and am still using it for the hop.
 The paper is Bazzill Solid Cherry Red Cardstock. The "it's your day!" is Simple Stories Happy Day Signature Classics 4x6 Journaling Card Elements that I won from Life's a Party August kit with Housecalls by: Scrappin Madge (http://www.heartstringdesigns.blogspot.com). The smile is a freebie cutting file from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons (http://prettypaperprettyribbons.blogspot.com/2014/02/new-file-freebie-friday.html) and I used Recollections Foam Adhesive Squares to make it stand out. The birthday cake sticker is Karen Foster Design Blow Out the Candles Cardstock Stickers. The balloons, birthday hat, and present are all Sticko Birthday Party. The vellum Happy Birthday piece is from DCWV Colored Stack for Cards and I used Bazzill Cherry Red again to add some color behind it.
Here's a close-up of it.

This is the inside top spread. The candles and stars are Sticko Birthday Party again. The Blow Out the Candles is Karen Foster Blow Out the Candles Cardstock Stickers again. The blow whistle is Recollections Dimensional Stickers.

This is the bottom spread where I wrote my note. The sentiment sheet is from Life of the Party, again, Echo Park Paper Company Birthday Wishes by Glitz.

Next you will go to Shana's Blog. Here's the entire line-up in case you get lost along the way.

I'm having the same problem with blogger too. I can't follow allot of gals :( I'd love to show you the layering I did on the card. By any chance are you in the riverside area? I can always do a card and blog it for you.
