"29? Again" Blog Hop

Welcome to the "29 ? AGAIN" birthday blog hop. We are so glad you have decided to join us today for this is a ONE day blog hop that will last all day today, from 12:00 am to 11:59 pm. 

We’ve had so much fun creating this hop, and we have a wonderful line up with some oh-so-talented creators. You will see some lovely projects having to do with a birthday theme and have a chance to win some blog candy along the way, including some grand prizes which are being sponsored by Tricia at { } and Kristal at {}. SCRAPPINGMAMMA  (our blog hostess) will be donating a bunch of crafting items as well.. And our blog participants will also have blog candy along the way, so be sure to comment on all of the blogs.. 

Happy 29th birthday to you at any age. Isn't it fun to stay 29 forever!?! I took that thought and turned it into a fun card.
This card only has a front side but it has a lot going on for one side.  I used DCWV for the paper with a shiny background for the letters but thought it needed more so I got out my Bic markers and colored the white part of the letters in as well as the candles and chocolate frosting on the cake.  

I used Stickle's glitter glue for my flames and Liquid Pearls to outline the cake. I gently stamped brown and purple on my cake and dish to give it it's speckled look.

The bow was a project in itself. I braided ribbon, strung it through the top of the card, glued it down, then when it was dry I went back and took out the ends of the braids and trimmed them to the length I thought they looked best.

Thanks for taking the time to look and now you can continue on your "29? Again" blog hop but first go below and see what to do to get in on the fabulous blog candy give away.

Happy 29th to you Grand Prize...
