My last post was showing you the card I made for my hubby's birthday. His birthday is in September. That shows how far behind I am in posting. Today I have the birthday card I did for my friend and upline, Debbie Naylor. Guess when her birthday was. Go ahead, guess.... Give up? It was yesterday. That's right --- I am actually posting the day after the event. The only thing better would have been posting yesterday on her birthday like her sister and my Simply Paper Design team cohort Cindy did. Oh, well, on to the card......

I was clicking through my Favorites list for the web one day and I saw a cool card that Dawn Griffith did with folds and Framelits for the Big Shot. I loved the look of it and Dawn even had a video that shows how to do it here. Good thing, too, because I would never have figured it out on my own. Here is how it turned out..........

Partially opened:

Fully opened:

Isn't it the most awesomest? Of course, it was not as easy for me to handle the Big Shotting as Dawn makes it look in her video, but I finally managed it. The flowers are from Field Flowers and are stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Rich Razzleberry cardstock. The DSP is the new Floral District, coming out in the new catalog tomorrow. The front sentiment is from Pursuit of Happiness and the "Happy Birthday" on the inside is from Bring on the Cake.

I hope Debbie enjoyed her day yesterday and was properly spoiled!!!
Happy Birthday, Debbie!!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!! Have a great day!!!!
