Melon Doily Birthday


TGIF Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made while working on another challenge, this is NOT the one I ended up using you can see that one tomorrow.

Not alot of stamping going on, I used a piece of the Stampin' Up Flirtatious Speciality Paper, Love this paper, it coordinates with the Delicate Doilies stamp set and the colors in the papers are some of my all time favorites.
The base of my card is Melon Mambo Card stock and then I used another piece of Melon Mambo that I embossed with the Framed Tulips Embossing Folder. I then used a layer of whisper white and then the DSP. I stamped one of the doilies from the so pretty Stampin' Up set called Delicate Doilies with Melon mambo ink onto whisper white. I cut this out and added it to the card with dimesionals. I added over a white doily on the DSP. It looks like it was made to go there. I added some basic rhinestones around the doily and a bit bigger ones in the top corner.
I used some whisper white satin ribbon to wrap around and tie a bow. The sentiment on here comes from the new Stampin Up set called Happiest Birthday Wishes, this is a new Hostess set. 

Well, that is all from me today, thanks for stopping by and
 HAPPY STAMPING!!

What a beautiful composition of this stamp set. I am usually unable to successfully use this color without having to wear sunglasses - but you did a fabulous job of creating a soft and lovely look with the use of the white ribbon and images, along with the textured folder around. Lovely!
