Happy Birthday Doily in Black and White

This is another card that we will make at stamp camp this month. I just love the new Doily stamps, don't you? I will post my ATC trade later where I used this same stamp set.

I saw a post on a Stampin' Up! demonstrator website with this card on it. So I googled and found her blog so I would have a link to show you here card. Thank you Lyssa for the great idea. I embossed the sentiment, all my dollies and sponged my paper daisy with basic Black ink (just enough so that it is not so white). I used a different sentiment and did not use the spritzer, but the Confetti white paper instead. I only wrapped my ribbon around once, but I like the twice also. And I did not put the pearls on my ribbon.
Here is my card:

Wish Big Pennant Parade Birthday card

Hi! Guess what? I am still alive and living in Summerville, South Carolina. I really apologise for not keeping up this blog better, and promised to make a much better effort.

Here is one of the projects for this months stamp camp. Yes, I am having a camp. The date is Monday, August 22, 2011 at 6:00 pm. Be sure to call, text or phone in your reservations.

I love this first card. I saw where someone had made a taller version and had a box attached, much like these I did last Halloween. I just made it much smaller. so that it would fit into a regular A2 (Stampin' Up! Medium) size envelope. No matter the size, I am sure you will have as much fun making this card as the person receiving does when they open it.
