Jewels, a birthday's best friend...

Every girl loves a little bling on her birthday....even if it comes on a card instead of a piece of jewelry! :)  The first card I have to share with you today has a big focus on pretty jewels, which is the current challenge at Jacksonbelle Embellishments.  It is also based on Mojo Monday sketch 121.

"Celebrate" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper/Paper Frill/Button: Doodlebug Designs
Jewels: Zva Creative (sentiment) & Basic Grey (present)
Ribbon: Renaissance By Design
Twine: Darice Inc.
Corner Rounder: EK Success

Instructions: Round the bottom corners of a kraft colored card base.  Round the bottom corners of block of plaid paper and adhere to the front.  Cut a strip of dotted glitter paper, and adhere towards the top.  Round the bottom corners of a block of white cardstock, and adhere to the front.  Attach a scalloped paper frill to the seam.  Cover the seam with white ribbon, and tie a button around the bow with twine.  Add the jewels present to the white block, and the jewel sentiment to the top strip.

And I have one more card to share today!  It isn't completely birthday themed, but it is baby themed....which is kind-of celebrating a birthday in a way!  So, I figured it still fits a bit.  This card is based on Laura's Sketch 43 at 2 Sketches 4 U this week.  Lovely sketch this week!

"A Wish Came True" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: K & Company
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Ribbon: Renaissance By Design
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Diecut Machine: Cricut by Provo Craft
Diecut Cartridges: Storybook, New Arrivals by Provo Craft

Instructions: Round the bottom corners of a white card base.  Round the bottom corners of a block of aqua striped paper and adhere to the front.  Cut baby feet card at 5" from heart kraft paper using a Cricut and New Arrivals cartridge.  Cut 3/8" off each side, and cover the cutout  inside with white cardstock.  Adhere the block to the front.  Add a strip of ribbon down the center, cutting it off right before the baby feet.  Cut the sentiment block at 3" using patterned paper & kraft cardstock using a Cricut and Storybook cartridge.  Layer the cuts together, popping the top layer with dimensional adhesive. Adhere the sentiment block to the front, and accent with pearls.  Top the sentiment block with a bow. 

If you checked out my rainbow card post from yesterday, I actually ended up changing it.  I decided I didn't like how the sentiment looked, so I picked a new one and redid it.  It looks much better now....and I have added a new photo to that post.  Check it out if you like!

We are still having a fun time in Sheridan with the family!  The guys had a great time ice fishing yesterday, and today....they just got back.  My dad is getting meatloaf ready now....yum!  I so love comfort food!  So, I am going to sign off for now.  But first, I will leave you with sweet photo of our littlest (or....youngest, actually.) :)

She conked out on the couch like this last night...and slept there forever.  Basically until I started to take photos of her, and the flash annoyed her.  Then she curled up into a little ball in the same corner of the couch.  Isn't she a doll?!  ♥

Until later,
~Lea
