10 Minute Craft Dash Birthday Bash



Good morning!!! I'm so excited to be celebrating the birthday of the 10 Minute Craft Dash :)  If you got here from Tiffany's blog, you're on the right track.  If not, you can always start back at Paulina's.

The theme is birthday, and here's my creation:


...and of course, I made a video.  I just got a camcorder (not a nice one, but hopefully better than shooting with my iPhone)- I attempted to film in HD, so make sure to select that for the video quality when you watch.  Lighting was tricky, especially at the start (it kind of evens out a few minutes in), so if you have any tips, please let me know. Thanks!




So....in the video, I finished with a few seconds to spare, but I didn't get a chance to add the white gel pen dots.  The photo at the top of my post is the original card, and below you'll see that I went back and added the white.  I like it this way a lot more!


(I'll be submitting this card to the Moxie Fab World Birthday challenge!)


Now the prizes, for commenting on the hop:


If you play along, you could also win a HUGE gift card from Ellen Hutson, along with a fab prize pack!




Your next stop is Andrea... have fun!
