Angelica's It's Your Birthday Blog Hop!

 Hello, happy morning, and welcome to The ThINKin' Spot!    Today is a very special day, indeed, because we're celebrating the birthday of the very sweet, and talented Angelica Suarez with a birthday blog hop!  If you arrived here from the very creative Heather Hoffman's House Built of Cards Blog, then you are hopping along in just the right order, but if you just happened along, then head back to the beginning of this hop at Kathy's blog so that you can start from the very beginning and not miss one wonderful creation along the way!  Here's the card I made to celebrate Angelica's birthday, and it will soon be on it's way to her.  I know, I know...  It'll be late, but better late than never.  At least that seems to be the way I roll, lately. 

I created this card using the Celebrate Cake stamp set, which is one of Angelica's beautifully illustrated stamp sets from Market Street Stamps.  I had so much fun paper piecing this cake, and adding shading with my Copic markers.  It doesn't show up in the photo, but there's some pretty sparkle, which was added with my Spica glitter pens, and of course, the Nestabling and rhinestones added plenty more bling to this fun card.

The embossing folder that I used for the background, as well as the gingham ribbon are from Stampin' Up!, and the labels for the sentiment were made with Stampin' Up! punches.  I hope you've enjoyed the hop so far, and your next stop to hop to is at super talented Stephanie Muzzulin's Blog.  Don't forget that if you're beginning here, you're gonna want to go back to see what you've missed.  You can do that by clicking the button below, which will take you directly to Kathy's Blog.

Should you happen to get lost along the way, below is a complete list of all the stops along this hop.

Thanks so much for hopping along with us today.  Have a blessed and beautiful SON-day!  Happy stamping!!
