Happy Birthday Dippy

As you all probably know by now (!!!) it's Darnell's birthday............if you didn't, why not???  It's all over blogland!

Here's my card for Dippy (sorry but we have pet names for each other!!! lol).


I've made her a flip card using my Tattered Lace Westminster dies which are so pretty.  There is a set of three dies - the square outer with the cut out corners, the middle circular lacy design and then a smaller circular die - you also get the lovely corner die to match.  I am sure you all know how to make these flip cards but if anyone wants to know how to do them let me know and I can post the instructions.  Now I need to make a confession...............I stamped the central motif in Delicata Golden Glitz but I can't remember what the stamp is!  Senior moment........again!  On the back of the card you can just see the sentiment/greeting.  I added a bit of bling as well.   I do hope she's received the card as I was a little tardy in posting it but I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

There are two parties going on for Darnell.  Pop over to Bev's who has a celebration at Happy Dance and Ardyth has a Mr Linky at Maskerade for you all to link up your birthday wishes.

Hope you have an absolutely wonderful birthday Dippy..............mwah!!! lol
