Birthday Card and Blog Candy

Today I have a birthday card to share with you. This one is going in my stash for now as I don't have any birthdays coming up for awhile. There were a couple of challenges going on that I wanted to participate in, so that is the reason for today's card. Over on the VDBC forum (in this month's Bingo game), there is a challenge to create a project using a file off the provided Bingo list. I chose to use one of the frames from Chris' Simple Borders file (CD00219). I also used her file for the birthday sentiment (CD00855). Birthday Sundaes has a great challenge this week to incorporate at least 3 brads on your birthday card. This is a great challenge for me because I have tons of brads and always forget to use them. So this card features 4 brads - the flower center, the dot of the "i" and the 2 square floral brads in the lower right corner. I also used a sentiment stamp from K Andrew's Positive Thoughts set.

Now onto the blog candy. Next month will be my 1 year anniversary of blogging. Hard to believe, right? I plan on celebrating that occasion with a big blog candy giveaway, but in the meantime I thought I would have some small weekly blog candy. So here is what I have for you this week.

The Rules:
1. You must be a follower.
2. You must leave a comment on this post. I would love it if you would tell me your favorite adhesive for gluing small pieces to your card or project.
3. For extra chances to win, comment on my other posts from this week (8/14 - 8/21).

I will draw a winner next week (probably on Wednesday, August 24th) and mail out your goodies (due to the cost of postage, this is only open to US residents, but I sincerely appreciate comments from my international readers as well). Be sure to check back to see if you win and also to see what next week's blog candy will be.

Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Very pretty card...Love how you used the brads.

  7. What an adorable card, Kelly! I love the colors! My favorite glue to use for small things is either a Zig glue pen or I'm not sure the name but it is a sheet of adhesive peel the top back, stick the small pieces on and then I use tweezers to pull them off and attach them. I only have one sheet left and I don't have the cover. I will look next time I go to Michaels for the name :)
