Birthday Wishes

To share a glimpse of how busy my life has been recently, I will ashamedly confess that I received a Stampin' Up! order in the mail on WEDNESDAY and did not get around to even opening it until this evening...even despite the fact that I had received these new Filigree Designer Brads!

Thankfully, despite my delay in opening the box, everything that I ordered was still there. They had not yet disappeared due to my lack of time to get everything out and play immediately. I worried that my Stampin' Up! orders had become too accustomed to being opened the minute they hit the porch!

I was so excited to use my new brads, and I was even more excited when I visited Dannie's blog and found a super-cute card to copy!

I do not have a very good assortment of DSP, so I used the Old Olive Patterns DSP that I do have and improvised for the rest of the card. I really liked the striped DSP that Dannie used on her card, but of course I had no striped DSP to use :-( Instead I used my scoring blade to give the look of striped paper! It was so easy and fast! Here's an up close picture of my stripes (and my new brads!)

I subscribe to Dannie's blog (because she always has such great ideas!), and I've noticed that she often stamps a small image on the inside of her card. I really like that technique, so I copied it for this card as well:

I hope you have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Stamp Sets: Eastern Blooms, Upsy Daisy
Colors: Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Old Olive

Happy Stamping!
