Robin Lane's Birthday Blog Hop

Hello Everyone.  We are celebrating with Robin Lane today.  It's her birthday and we all want to let her know how important she is to us.  So there are a few of us participating in her Happy Birthday to Me blog hop.  
If you are following along, you should have come from Connie Can Crop.  If you just happen to stop by you can start at the beginning with the birthday girl Create-a-Latte.  
Last year there was a wreath created that I wanted to copy.  I can't remember who created it, but it was a bunch of square papers rolled into cones and glued to a wreath base.  So here we are a year later with no wreath built, but still hanging onto the idea.
I started with a bunch of 1.25" squares and rolled them into a cone shape. Then glued them in a circle onto my card front. I tied two buttons together with a piece of hemp and made a bow for the center of the wreath. 

I then used an edge punch to create a boarder piece and stamped the sentiment with a Stampin' Up stamp.  I must admit that I wasn't to happy with that part.  I stamped it several times trying to figure out how to make it straight.  Not a lot of luck with that.  Then I used the Wink of Stella Clear brush pen to add some glittery color to the red card stock.  

Robin - I really hope you have a wonderful day!!!. 

Robin is giving away some wonderful blog candy if you stop by every blog and leave a comment.  Here's what she's giving away
