Milestone Day!

First I want to start by welcoming Elaine, Lori, Alex, and Jacquie to the SCACD DT!  These girls do amazing work, so make sure you stop by their blogs and say hello!  Along with our new members we did a little rearranging with our TIOT teams, so instead of me being on the Tues Team I will now be on the Thurs Team! Again we all do the same challenge, we just split up the inspiration into two days for you!

This week's challenge is the first challenge of the month so that means if you play along you get the chance to win a stamp from Susana's Store!  For the details click, -->here<--.  This week Suzanne has challenged us to create an invitation with a twist...and that twist is to use only RED, WHITE, and BLUE!  In case you haven't noticed the theme this week on my blog is BIRTHDAYS....all of my cards this week have a BIRTHDAY THEME to them because today marks a HUGE MILESTONE in my life:

TODAY is my 30th Birthday!!!!
Seeing how it's my birthday today I thought I would make my invitation a pool party invitation and what better then with a fun beach pail shaped card.  You can find the tutorial, here.
And you can't have a card without some fun Viva Decor Glitter!  I've used the Viva Decor Ruby Glitter Liner to edge my shovel.
Here is the fun inside!  Of course I couldn't resist using the NEW By the Sea by Victoria Case exclusively for SCACD!  I think this is my ultimate favorite one in the collection!  The image has been cut out with my Labels 4 Nestie. The invitation wording has been computer generated. 
This cutie was of course colored with Copics, and accented with a white gel pen.  Of course I had to "paint" her toenails too!
And from this view you can see the shine to the water, water drops and her eyes that has been created with Diamond Glaze.

I hope you have enjoyed my invitation!  Make sure you head over to the SCACD Blog to check out what the other girls have made!  I have school this morning but then I am off to enjoy the rest of my birthday...heck you only turn the BIG 3-0 once!  Good think my weekend starts at Noon more classes until Monday!  Yee-Haw!!!
