Happy Birthday - to us!!!

Hello everyone,

This is a very exciting post for us as it's our 2nd birthday.  So our challenge this game will be a birthday theme.  




Here are all of our amazing sponsors for our birthday hop. 




There are so many ways to win these super duper prizes.  
One fun way is treasure hunt!  See below for details.




Treasure Hunt Clue!



One way to win is to answer each DT's question we have on our blog and all you have to do is comment with the answer for each of us to win our prize.  


My question to you is:
I love CELEBRATING birthdays because there is always cake and ice cream.  What kind of cake do you like and why? 

Leave your answer in the comment section on this post for a change to win a goodie bag from me!


Now on with my card.

I added a bit of Rose Quartz ink to the lower corner of my card base to start.  Then I die cut the word Happy from Winnie & Walter and the Rose from Paper Smooches out of white card stock.  I added Wink of Stella to the rose and adhered it directly to the base and I popped up the Happy die cut with foam tape.  I stamped the Birthday sentiment in the same Rose Quartz ink from the That is All stamp set from WPlus9. 




Now it's time to go hop along with the other DT members.  You will not be disappointed with all the amazing creations with lots of inspiration.

  7. Coralyn your card is beautiful. I love the "tone on tone" look but with that pink blush it really makes it pop. Very pretty!
    In all honesty, I LOVE Dairy Queen's ice cream cakes. You get the "cake" and ice cream all in one and who doesn't love the fudgy middle with those crunchies in it??? YUM!

  8. Ooo, so pretty, Coralynn! Pink and white....ahhhhh. I love CHEESEcake, you know New York Style! Fresh strawberries too. Yum!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Gorgeous card Coralynn. Love that touch of pink and all that white! Cheesecake with fresh raspberries is my thing. I am more of a story lover than a sweet lover, but good cheesecake is irresistible.

  10. Beautiful subtle colours and a fab combo of die cuts. Cake - now I never eat cake or ice cream for that matter, but I can sort of remember once having a bit of a thing for lemon or chocolate or coffee or almond or ... Hmm seems I lied about the not eating cake thing!

  11. Great card! The way you made so much dimension is super!
    I like chocolatecake; just because I like chocolate that much...

  12. Chocolate, chocolate chocolate. What else is there? lol.

  13. I would have to say I love chocolate cake the best. I think chocolate should be its own food category because it is so scrumptious!

    ReplyDelete
  14. My favorite cake is good old white cake with that thick, sweet frosting from the deli at my grocery store. Yum!!

  16. Beautiful card! I love the pink and white combo and the awesome flower and word dies you used! Lovely!
    My favorite cake is one made especially for birthday celebrations by my Aunt Stella! She always made a chocolate cake with chocolate pudding in between the layers, frosted with whipped cream! Yum! Brings back lots of good memories with family celebrations!

  18. Such a lovely delicate card! My favorite cake is strawberry shortcake. A professionally made one. Not the cheap kind you can buy frozen. I also love plain cheesecake with fruit added on top, preferably strawberries. I've had both on my birthday.

  34. Your card is so pretty. Pretty in pink!
    My favorite cake is an ice-cream cake. I love ice-cream, so what better way to incorporate the two. Plus, the crunchy chocolate bits in the centre makes it extra fun to eat.

  36. What a beautiful card you made. HB to AAA Cards. I do not like cake, so my favorite sort of 'cake' is Baskin Robbins ice cream pie.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Such a pretty feminine card. I don't eat cake often, but reading all of the other comments, I'm suddenly craving for chocolate cake. Not a regular, high calory one but a low carb South Beach chocolate cake containing yoghurt and cocao powder. Hmmm, where did I leave the recipe?!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Beautiful card! I love all CAKE but my favorite would be pineapple upside down cake! Thanks. Happy Birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Crushing all over your soft, delicate card...so pretty with that love pink inked background. Favourite decadent treat: carrot cake with cream cheese icing and a little dollop of soft vanilla ice cream. Why: the sheer indulgence of enjoying an occasional sweet splurge...guilt free! I haven't done this in a LONG time (usually wait for a special reason), but I'm feeling my sweet tooth tingling...

  40. Love your card, it's so delicate looking and I love the way the happy just pops off the page. Cake - well I don't like to discriminate so I'm quite happy to sample any, but I'm rather partial to my aunts' homemade date + walnut cake xx

  41. That is so pretty, really elegant. Sadly as I am diabetic I have given up sugar more or less completely and no longer eat cake, although I do allow myself one small slice of Christmas cake at Christmas, so I guess Christmas Cake is my favourite.
