Happy Birthday Shutter Card - Swap & Giveaway info

So here is my next card for the Swap.  The colors I chose are from the patterned
paper I used.  Not colors I would have normally put together, but I like it.
The Shutter Card is cut at 5.5 x 12
The panels are all cut as listed below:
2 Blue on each end - 1.75 x 5.25
2 Purple over the Blue each end - 1.50 x 5.00
1 Center Blue - 3.75 x 2.00
1 Purple center over Blue - 3.50 x 1.75
4 small cream colored corners 1.75 x 1.25
2 long pattern pieces - 1.25 x 3.75
2 Short pattern pieces - 1.75 x 2.00

The 2 end purple pieces are embossed with a cuttlebug borders set I have.
I can't remember the name, I will have to see if I can look that up.
The blue, behind the purple are embossed with Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy.
The small cream colored 4 corners are embossed with Cuttlebug
Birds & swirls.  Also the Birthday cake is a mini folder from a cuttlebug set,
then I rubbed it with Ocean Blue Ink pad from Martha Stewart.
The awesome Bird Cut is from Cricut Straight from the Nest,
One of my Newest Cartridges, I will be doing much more with this
cartridge.  Lots of goodies on it.  The ribbon cord is from my
stash, OTC I think is where I got it.  The flower is from OTC and the blue bling
in the center I picked up from Jo-ann's.  The purple Bling for the eye and
the Pattern paper are from a scrapbooking kit from Momenta.
 The card itself is Bazzill cardstock, as is the cream colored cardstock.  The Blue is
from my stash and so is the Purple used for the embossed layers and the
birds wing.  I will be making 5 more of these for my card swap due in
September.  Woo I better get busy because I have 2 more sets of 6
to do after these.  I love it though.  Fun Fun Creating time, lol

Project in these Challenges:

I am also going to have a giveaway soon if the cartridge ever shows up
that I ordered for it.  I will keep it a surprise for now in case
I have to get something different.  That will be announced
very soon though so keep your eye out for that.

Well thanks for stopping by and having a look.  I hope you will
leave me a comment and new Friends/Followers are always welcomed.
Have a wonderful & Crafty Day!!!

Awesome shutter card, Eva! They are one of my favorite kinds of card to make but I don't mkae them very often because they require a lot of time and paper to make (I always decorate both sides). I really like the unusual color combination and all the dry embossing you did. Thanks so much for hopping along with is on the All About Babies Blog hop and for becomeing my new follower. I just had a look at some of your work and I'm following you too now. I hope you'll come back soon.
