Cocktails and moonlit nights...that dreamy look in your eye...

See, I told you I'd be back! Two posts in one day...can you believe it?  *grin*

We're still playing along for the Jacksonbelle Embellishments New Years Eve bash. This card is for the last challenge, which is to make Lindsey (Ms. Jacksonbelle herself) a birthday card since she has one coming up. Fun stuff! There are more fun things going on, like a treasure hunt and prizes, so make sure you check out the JBE Blog for all the details. And here is my birthday card, just for Miss Linz...
I know!! It's hilarious, right? I love this! I used the Got Cocktails set from Inkadinkado...which is a total deal at $1.99! It looks like they're out of stock right now, but if you pop an email to Lindsey I bet she can hook you up! Anywho, I stamped the roosters in Brilliance Graphite Black ink on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, then colored it with reinkers and a blender pen. After cutting out several layers with my Circle Nestabilities, I ran the scalloped layer through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and sponged the edges and raised dots with Baja Breeze ink.

The card base layers were stitched together with my sewing machine, then I added some brads from my We R Memory Keepers Hardware kit and some lace trim. I popped up the circle panels, and finally added the sentiment (from River City Rubber Works). Inside the card says "Happy Birthday!" *snicker* I think this is just perfect, don't you?

So....there have been talks of hidden blog candy, and guess what? You found one! Here's what I have to give away:
This is a Basic Grey Milk Chocolate Lotus Chipboard Album...that just sounds yummy!! All you have to do to win is leave me a comment on this post by Friday, January 2nd at 12:00 PM (EST). At that time, I will choose a winner using random.org and post it here. Easy! Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to check out the other JBE Team Members Blogs to look for more chances to win!

And have a wonderfully HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!

Love the card, as usual! You amaze me with all the stuff you come up with. The milk chocolate makes me want to drool on the keyboard - imagine the mess I could make of the album if I won! Just let me try it!!!! I agree teals or pinks would look great with that rich chocolate color. Thanks for a chance to win. Happy New Year.
