Happy 23rd Birthday Julie Nutting Card

                 

                                       
Am way ahead of someone's birthday, but the gift has already been given and am going to send this on to her anyway!!! LOVE lavishing gifts and especially since she is making kind of expensive purchases. Well anyway, am so excited that this is @KathyRac's month of #thedailymarker30day challenge and I am posting every day on my Instagram account. Go here under @jordanbev5 and please follow me. If you aren't on yet...I highly recommend that you get an IG account of your own due to the flood of inspiration at your fingertips and so much faster to post and read and even watch short videos!! But please make sure to tell me YOUR account so I can follow you and see your pictures too!
 The background paper is in black and white with words for Birthday cheer, like Hip Hip Hooray and Happy Birthday from Echo Park's Party Time in a 6x6 pad. The bottom sheet of multicolored candles is also from the same. The beautiful frilly frame is designed by Becca Feeken from Amazing Paper Grace's Chantilly Paper Lace Collection called Tallulah Frill from Spellbinders. Isn't it so pretty!!! I die cut it out of Lemon Yellow Bazzill Cardstock with my Platinum 6 machine. I hand cut the papers to size and then began arranging all the pieces. To help the numbers stand out, I die cut an oval from Spellbinders Pierced Ovals in the smallest size and then added the "23" from Thickers red foil set.
  The little girl is from Prima Marketing Inc, Julie Nutting stamp set appropriately called, Party Girl! I colored her with Sketch Copic Markers: R00, R20, R22, E000, E21, YR24, YR31, Y17, Y21. I fussy cut her out and added dimensional glue to the back to pop her up. The oval was also popped up as well. I still needed something more and grabbed some May Arts silk ribbon in lemon yellow. LOVE ribbons and have this in two shades of yellow!!! I really love seam binding and silk to add a soft billowy bow to a card don't you?
 A sentiment was added inside to finish it off and viola', a beautiful girly card to send out! I must say, I think I send her all Julie Nutting dolls for her birthdays because it seems so appropriate! The frillier the better too!!

    1. I did use the "oval" as a balloon because I liked that it looked like one. You picked that right up, and am glad that it worked for the card! Thank you for your sweet comment!

  3. Such a beautiful card. I love the pattered paper choice for the background and the yellow on black is such a pretty color scheme you have given to the card. Most of all, loving the bright yellow satin ribbon bow. So feminine and pretty. Thank you so much for joining us on Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. xx Ankita
