:: Bring on the cake! It's Birthday Sundaes Challenge 1st Blog Hop! ::

Birthday Sundaes 1st Blop Hop -- Bring on the Cake!

I am SOOOOO excited to be participating in Birthday Sundaes first blog hop,
but I must share a fun secret I've been keeping from you...

Kristie has asked me to be apart of the Birthday Sundaes Design Team! S:o)

I'm looking forward to sharing my take on upcoming challenges and having the chance to work with the other DT members (Amber, Amy, Jo, Kimberly, Maribel, Sonia, Sue, Tara, Tracey, Vivien) and most importantly, sharing my love of card making with you!  I would like to wish the departing DT members (Candice, Cindy, Jen, Marlene, Michelle) all the best in their future endeavours.

 


Here are the supplies I used to create this card:


Without further adieu, why not hop to the Birthday Sundaes blog and check out the new web design and some of the great prizes that you can win!  From there you can start the blog hop and enjoy the creations the DT (Terms 1 & 2) have designed!

Thanks for stopping by!

I love those stamps! Where did you get them? Also, the pearl accents around the stamped bg- is that stick-on pearls or something else?
