Welcome!  Today The Twinery and DeNami Design are teaming up to provide you lots of inspiration and fabulous prizes!

If this is your first stop, you will want to head back to The Twinery!
You should be arriving here from Emily Keaton's Blog!

Today I am sharing a birthday card I created using The Twinery's Maraschino Baker's Twine (still my most favorite) and DeNami Design's Happy Birthday Sentiment and Border!  Don't they work beautifully together!?

Supplies:
Paper: For the Record 6x6 pad (Echo Park)
Punch: X-Large Circle (Fiskars) and Crop-A-Dile (We R Memory Keepers)
Ink: Mustard Seed Distress Ink by Tim Holtz (Ranger)
and Tuxedo Black (Momento)
Pencils: Colored Pencils (Faber-Castell)
Other: Gamsol

And here is how I put it together...
1.  Stamp the Birthday Celebrations border on white cardstock in black ink then fussy cut the bottom edge.
2.  Using adhesive, add Maraschino twine in between the border area of the stamp.
3.  Punch holes where the small circles are in the stamp.
4.  Use an ink to color the white cardstock.
5.  Place a lot of color on the border.
6.  Color the details of the stamp with color pencils and use Gamsol to blend.


To be eligible for prizes, just leave comments on each participating blog on the hop. 
Deadline to leave comments is 11:59pm, EDT, Saturday, May 12th.  
Winners will be announced on The Twinery Blog on Sunday, May 13th.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Laurie Willison!
