Amber Ink Birthday Blog Hop


It's hard to believe, but it's 12 months since Amber Ink debuted, and I was lucky enough to be one of the inaugural torchbearers.  What better way to celebrate than a blog hop, below your find links to all of the stops along the way, make sure you leave plenty of love along the way, cos there are prizes to be won (Winners will be announced on Friday on the Amber Ink Blog)
I had great fun making this Birthday Card for Amber Ink, I used images from the Hostess with the Mostess set, along with the icing and sentiment from the new Bake me a Cake set.  My papers are ipapers from the Amber Ink store in 3 different colour ways.

I used one of my favourite techniques on this card too, the spotlight technique; remember this card from the Amber Ink Launch....
This is still one of my favourite cards.  I hope you like it too.

Have fun hopping along,
Thanks for visiting with me
