Stylish Happy Birthday

Hi there!

I’m back this week with a card I made for a dear friend for her birthday yesterday (Sunday). I decided to submit this card to the CASual Fridays challenge since this card certainly fits the challenge for the week:  CFC73:  For The Girls-Create a Clean And Simple card that celebrates the women in your life. I admire my friend for her strength, determination and her sense of style. I couldn’t help but use my old (and I believe retired) paper doll dies from Quickutz to wish her a "happy birthday". I gave the doll a sparkly top and a bit of "shine" on the doll's accessories (glitter/silver heat embossing). The papers I used are from Stampin’ Up! and I also used a Stampin’ Up! embossing folder (Adorning Accents) for the edge detail. I love using the paper doll die set because it is so versatile. You can see another card that I posted earlier in the year using the same paper doll die set HERE.

Thanks for dropping by!

Stay inspired,



  1. There's a lot to admire about this card.,.....perfect details that must have required a lot of thought and time. I have the EF you used but never would have thought to use it like that, like a curtain on a stage where she is modeling. The jewelry and clutch look so real, and I love the font for that sentiment.

    Looking at your work is such pleasure!

  2. Absolutely fabulous! Love the image! Thanks so much for playing with us at CAS-ual Fridays!

  3. That paper dolls die is fabulous! That glitter and shimmer is perfect! Thanks for playing along this week at CAS-ual Fridays!
