Life is Sweet!

Good day to all my bloggy friends!
I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend!
I am back and will be making my bloggy visits soon.
I had issues with my allergies and am recuperating from a stomach virus which I got on Mother's Day weekend. I am feeling much better. 
Today I have a card that I would like to share with you as well as entering it to the following challenges:

1. DCWV'S May Stack-a-holic Challenge

2. Freshly Made Sketches # 288



Here is what I created:


For my card, I used DCWV's "Gold & White" premium stack.
As soon as I saw the gold pineapple prints I immediately knew that I had to make a card with it.
In the same stack, I cut out the "life is sweet" label.
To complete the sketch, I used the Cool Pineapple Cutting File from Kadoodle Bug Designs.
I added a Pink Sunglass Brad from Eyelet Outlet & Brads and then I adhered the die cut with foam tape for dimension.



Other Supplies:
Recollections Gold & Basic Cardstock
Bazzill Embossed Polka Dot Cardstock (green)
Tombow Multi Mono Liquid Glue

Other challenges:
DL.ART May Linky Party

Here is my project:
I made a Birthday gift set!

 For the layers of the birthday shaker card, I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies from Gina Marie Designs and Colorbok shaped papers. For the shaker portion I used the Scallop Rectangular Dies (Ebay) and colorful sequins. The Happy Birthday die cut is from the Silhouette Online Store. I used the Stitched Butterfly Die and the Fun Size Scallop Stitched Bow Die from My Creative Time.
To complete my card I added white pearls.

For the birthday gift bag, I decorated a mini paper bag from Michaels. I used the same GMD dies and papers. I adhered white pearls to the pretty banner (Ebay). The cupcake die cut is from Lori Whitlock. I stamped the birthday sentiment on a Stitched Oval Die from My Creative Time. For a touch of cuteness, I added a pretty bow and filled it with yummy goodies.


This is the prize being offered on my page!
I will be making a surprise bundle that you will be sure to enjoy!
