Happy Birthday + Giveaway!

Today I worked on a birthday card for a challenge over at Stamp TV, it's my party! I love to do birthday cards and never seem to have enough.
I made the striped paper by making my own glitter paste, my first attempt and I love how it turned out! Now I can make any color paste I want to match my card stock. It's just a mixture of texture paste, I used transparent gloss and added Nuvo pure sheen glitter and Gina K lemon drop dye reinker. Mix it together and spread a thin layer over a stencil. Remove stencil and clean immediately along with your spatula. Allow to dry before stamping or cutting.

Now for the give away, I've been organizing and cleaning up my craft room and found several duplicates of items, so I've decided to pass them along to someone else. Just leave me a comment if you're interested and I will draw a winner on Sunday February 5, 2017!  The winner will receive More Massive Messages from GinaK design Stamp set and the Spellbinders Label 37 set.

Hope everyone has a crafty happy weekend!
