Jen's Birthday Bash: Day 5

Welcome to Day 5 -- the last day of my week-long birthday card bash. Thanks for stopping by!   I had a wonderful birthday yesterday. A low-key day followed by a wonderful dinner prepared by Dee.  Tonight I'm celebrating with family at my favorite local Sushi restaurant.  YUM!

I could think of no better way to celebrate than with a week-long celebration with my bloggy buddies! A different card each and every day and a small piece of blog candy, too. And at the end of the week . . . a special gift drawn by random.org from all the party-goers!

This card was created for another June baby in our family, Dee's sister-in-law Bridget. 

This card measures 5 1/2" square and is made with plain white card stock. The mat was made up of two pieces of card stock -- the patterned paper is by Heidi Grace Designs and the green is Bazzill's Petty Cash.  A pink grosgrain ribbon with hot pink stitching hides the seam. 
All of the cuts on the card front are from Create-A-Critter.  The zebra measures 3 1/2" high and  "Go Wild" is 1 7/8" high.
The zebra striped paper is from a paper pack I purchased from Creative Memories about 6 or 7 years ago.  The rest of the papers are from my scrap stash.  The flowers inside were punched with my Sizzix -- in the days before I owned a Cricut -- and are held together with a flower brad.  The inside sentiment was computer generated.  A little pen doodling and pen stitching complete this fun card.



You can't have a birthday without some presents! So each day this week, Monday through Friday, there will be a little blog candy for you to win. And then at the end of my birthday bash there will be a grand prize winner drawn from all the participants during the week. ** Check back tomorrow for the special gift reveal! ** The comments section for each day will stay open until 10:00 a.m. EST on Monday, June 27th. Winners for each day and the grand prize winner will be announced later that day.

To be eligible for the prizes please be a follower of my blog and leave a comment with your e-mail address. You can increase your chances, of course, by commenting on each day's post. Today's blog candy is a 10 piece set of clear stamps by Inkadinkadoo .

Thanks again for stopping by and helping me celebrate my birthday!

Cute zebra. That is my daughter's favorite animal too. Did you know there is a farm not far from you that raised zebras for movies? (I live in Ocala.)

Thanks for the chance to win some goodies.
