AAA Cards Challenge #39 - 1st BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP

Morning blog friends, have I got a superb and fun post for you today!
First of all AAA CAS Cards is celebrating it's 1st Birthday!
with a fantastic BIRTHDAY themed Blog hop challenge 
Whoopie ... party hats out, streamers, cake, balloons etc!
What's more we have some FAB prizes from our AMAZING sponsors 
for you to win in the blog hop ... read on for details
First of all here's my card which was ultra simple to make 
using scraps of coloured card strips, die-cuts of the letters and 
Doodlebug sprinkles to coordinate with the stripes. 

Card Recipe:
MFT Die-Namics: By the Letters (Lowercase)
die-cut then raised on 3 layers of black before adding to a strip in a the same colour.
Clearly Besotted: 'Birthday!!' heat embossed in Hero Arts white EP
from the Laugh  Out Loud set and Doodlebug sprinkles to accent

Ok ... how do YOU win some FAB prizes from our AMAZING sponsors?

All the details are over on the AAA Cards blog HERE
and we've some spectacular prizes from the world of craftiness!



So without further fuss we'd like to invite you to play along
in our Birthday BlogHop and comment along the way.
There's lots of hidden prizes so please don't miss anyone


EDIT: With all the attention to getting everything in this fabulous
Birthday Blog Hop post I've only just had a 'lightbulb' moment
that this card would fit perfectly over at Happy Little Stampers
where they'd like us to use dies and punches.



Not only that but the amazing Simon Says Stamp have a
'Let's Get Sentimental' theme on the Wednesday challenge blog
So I'm heading over there too!
