Check out my new blog banner and new card

Hi everyone!! Hope you're all having a great Thursday. Check out my fantastic blog banner that Nicole from the Etsy shop Lovesattendant made for me for winning Loreen's blog candy. I think she did an amazing job and I just want to say thanks again to Nicole.

I made this card on Tuesday night for my boyfriend's grandfather's birthday (which was yesterday). I thought the image (which comes from Art Impressions) suited him so I decided to go with it. I inked both the image and the happy birthday saying with my SU Chocolate Chip Stampin' Pad. I embossed both with clear detail embossing powder and coloured the image in with my Tombows. I used some copper baubles from Stamping Bella to add a little something and used pop dots to make the images stand out (although you can't really tell from this picture). I wasn't sure if he would like the card but he did, so that made me happy!

Also, go check out my SBS sister Sue's blog for your chance to win some great blog candy that she's giving away (she's drawing a winner on September 27th)!! Thanks everybody for stopping by to check out my newest card creation!!
