Happy Birthday! and Winner from Joys Life Blog Hop!

Hello to all my Crafty friends and Family! 
I hope this post finds you all well and that you had a lovely Easter with your family and friends. I know we sure did, lots of good food and even better company!
Not only is today April Fools, but it my turn for today's post for Joys Life Design Team. For my post today I decided to make another Birthday card to try and build up my stash.
I love the way this card turned out, it is so much prettier in real life. I could not get my camera to catch the beauty of the paper.
This card measures 5X5. It is made from a pretty black and white glitter card stock by Colorbok. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border and some pretty black crinkled ribbon for the bow. I also cut out a swirly circle with my cameo and then added a stamp from Joys Life All Around Sentiments which I  placed on top of a action wobble. The white pearls were made from liquid pearl which I am still trying to master. LOL!
Well if you stayed with me this long I do have a winner from Joys Life Blog Inspire me Blog Hop to announce.
I had 22 lovely people drop by and visit and leave a comment. I do thank each and everyone of you. But enough with my chatting...........
Drum roll
The lucky winner is #8.

Hi Jenny - firstly I would like to say that I love this card. Black and white always look so elegant. You mentioned in your post about not being able to catch the glitter of the paper. I sometimes find that if you do a side shot of the card at an angle into the light, you will actually pick up the sparkle. You could check out my blog as I always do a side view of my cards in my posts:-) Also, thank you, thank you so much for the win of your blog candy for the Joys Life Blog Hop. Have a fab week. Hugs, Karon
