Wink Wink Ink's 1st Birthday!

Hello! I'm excited to announce that today, the first day of the New Year, is Wink Wink Ink's 1st Birthday! And in honor of this day, Melanie, the designer and owner of Wink Wink Ink decided to throw a birthday party and she asked all her designers to create a card or project using images from her 'Birthday Necessities' set. This is a great digital set that includes any image you can imagine to make a birthday card or scrap book page. It has images of a cake, present, balloons, sentiments, candles, and numbers all in one set. The images in this set can also be used with other Wink Wink Ink digital images too, so any Wink Wink image can quickly and easily be turned into a birthday card.

I decided to use the Present and Cake image to make my card. First I created my own background paper by duplicating the present image a multiple number of times and then coloring it in. Then I added the cake image as my main focal image. I covered the frosting with pink glitter, and added tiny pearls to the cake. The sentiment is also in the Wink Wink Ink set, I used a Cuttlebug Die to make the tag.

Here's a close up of this feminine, sparkly, pretty cake! And now, it's YOUR turn to help us celebrate Wink Wink Ink's First Birthday! ONE lucky winner will be chosen with a grand prize of $25.00 worth of images! Here's what you have to do to qualify:

1. Grab the adorable Birthday Badge above

2. Display it on your blog sidebar and link back to Wink Wink Ink until the end of January.

3. Write up a post on your blog telling folks about our celebration, and THEN

4. Add your direct post back to the Wink Wink Ink Blog

Thats it! You don't even have to make a card to qualify! And please stop back often at the Wink Wink Ink blog. There just might be more Birthday Party Fun in store for you throughout the month.

Have a great day! Amy
