"It's Earth Day, It's My B-Day" Blog Hop



Hi Everybody!
Welcome to the "It's Earth Day, It's My B-Day" Blog Hop!  How awsome is it that our hop hostess, and my friend Gaby gets her own holiday for her birthday?!?!  Lol!  Hopefully you just came from the awsome Melin over at Cooking With Cricut.  If not, please head over to see our hop hostess Gaby at http://www.gabycreates.com/.   So I decided to make her a birthday card.  But in the spirit of Earth Day, I used things I already had in my stash.  I didn't make any Cricut cuts (GASP!  Please don't tell "him"!)!  Here is the card I made:

*This was a card kit that came with all the pieces you see (except for the green border and ribbon-I added those).

*The background was just the polka dots, but I was able to add a lotta bling by adding a dot of Stickles in matching colors in the middle of each dot.



*And what die cut can't be made cuter with a Peachy Keen Stamp??!! I used the Happy Lashes Assortment for this one :oD

 

*I used a Martha Stewart border punch with Post-it Craft Paper.
*Then I added green Stickles along the bottom.

*Since Gaby loves green, I highlighted that color from the background.

*This green ribbon, and bling matched perfectly!!


Did ya like it?  Gaby, do you like it?!?!  I hope so :oD  Gaby is an amazing person that I have been lucky enough to become friends with.  HAVE THE BEST BIRTHDAY EVER GABY!!!!!

Now head on over to see the amazing Cathie!


Here's the lineup in case you get lost or need to stop along the way:
