21st Birthday Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Ashley's 21st Birthday Blog Hop!

We are so glad you could join us! If you're looking to start at the beginning of the hop, you're in the right place! Please be sure to hop through Day 1 if you haven't already!

This weekend we are celebrating my 21st birthday with some fun and creative, birthday/alcohol-themed projects! It's not 21 without a drink or two, right?! And what better way to celebrate than with a blog hop with all my crafty friends?! :)

For my second project, I actually created a 21st birthday card for a friend of mine who has her 21st at the end of the month. 

It's my first shaker card! I had to look up a couple tutorials to make sure I was doing it right, and it's actually super easy! Not sure why I've never tried it before. I cut the '21' using my Silhouette, adhered transparency to the inside (actually a piece of cellophane bag that I cut out) and then added the sequins and adhered the back to it. Ta da!

I misted the front of the card with some of Heidi Swapp's Color Shine in Gold to pull out the gold for the sequins. It's simple, yet classy! Perfect for my friend's style. :) 

We have 21 fabulous sponsors providing 21 fabulous prizes for those who hop with us, and because there are so many of them, we have included all the prize information in the second stop of the lineup.

To be eligible to win, you must...
- Leave a comment on EVERY stop of BOTH days of the hop 

I am also having a GIVEAWAY! Check out the post for more details on how you can win - the winner will be announced the same day as the hop winners!

Winners will be randomly chosen and announced on Friday March 14th at Made Especially For You.

Your next stop is to check out the Hop Prizes!

Here's the complete lineup in case you get lost along the way...
