Now let's get on with the festivities! If you came from Gina then you are on the right track. If you want to start from the beginning, please hop on over to Nicole's Blog.  Here is the complete hopping list just in case you get lost:

First of all, I want to wish Nicole a very Happy 40th Birthday, and I am honored to be participating in this hop in honor of her birthday. My project for today is a card and layout to send to Nicole  for her birthday. I used my Gypsy to weld a Crown from Simply Charmed together. I cut it from shiny Pink Paper. Then I cut a single crown slightly smaller from Glitter Pink Zebra Paper. I welded numbers 40 together and cut them from Fuchusia Sparkle Paper. I added some ribbon and flowers. Taa-dah, I have a birthday card for Nicole.

For the layout, I used Black Bling as the base. I cut two 5 in. stripes of the Recollections Glitter Pink Zebra Paper. I used Fuchsia Coordination’s to make 5 ½ x7 ½ mat and 2-4 ½ x 6 ½ mats.

I cut a crown with Simply Charmed from Recollections Fuchsia Sparkle Paper. I welded 40 together with the Gypsy and cut it from Recollections Glitter Pink Zebra Paper. I used Hannah Montana Cartridge to cut 1 ½ title letters and shadow letters from Black Bling and Recollections Fuchsia Sparkle Paper. I added some Ribbon and Flowers for finishing touches. Flowers for card and layout are from Recollections.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.   Now, please head over to Zenita’s to see what fabulous creation she has in store for you.
