Close to My Heart, Birthdays and a Winner!

Alright, I will not delay this any longer. I know that you've been waiting to find out who the winner of the My Memories V.3 is..... CONGRATULATIONS! Marianne Fisher. I hope you enjoy creating with your new software! I can't wait to see what you come up with!
In recent news, I received my order this week from a company called Close to My Heart, and I loved it. This is what I ordered:
Canvas badge buttons
irresistibles lots of dots
clear acrylic cards
basic mini ink pads

Once I tore open the box, I could not wait to use my new toys. So, considering that I had four birthdays this week, I decide to get right to work making a birthday card.
I started with the clear acrylic card as my base and My Minds Eye Paper. If you've never made a card using acrylic, I encourage you to give it a try, it's so pretty, and unique. I used the mini ink pads to distress my paper, and they are the best inks I've ever used! I am not compensated in any way for saying that, I truly like this ink, and it will probably be the ink I buy for all of my future projects.

I fussy cut the butterfly from the patterned My Minds Eye Paper, then glued it to a chipboard butterfly from my stash that I had inked. Then adhered 3 pearls from my stash. The Happy Birthday lettering is from The Girls Paperie sticker pad.  The tan lace trim I ordered from a daily deal site called Pick Your Plum... it's local, so I don't pay shipping!
The resin flower I also ordered from Pick Your Plum. The frame is from Prima Marketing.

This is the inside of the card, once again more My Minds Eye Paper, and the rub-ons are from my stash  I think they are from S.E.I.
So if you've enjoyed what you see here, I encourage you to visit the Close to My Heart web site and place an order. My friend Cheri from DJ Sundries gets credit towards her new cricket cartridge when you order. So go show her some love. :-)
Thank you for stopping by today, I hope this helps to get your creative juices flowing.
Have a great weekend,
