Daisy Delight, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Birthday Card, Stampin' Up 2017-2018 Calendar

I saw this card by Carolyn at Kings on Paddington.  The moment I saw it I knew I wanted to make one.  I did change it a little.  I did have the words but I didn't realize that until after I had stamped these.  Oh, and I didn't have the ribbon, so I used some retired Daffodil Delight.  I just got some new ribbons but never the ones I want when I see a new card!! Isn't that how it goes? 

When I was at Carolyn's site, I didn't see any measurements for the card so I had to guess.  But I did write them down for you!

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Nigh of Navy. On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White.  On top of that is a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of the daisy paper from the "Delightful Daisy" Designer Series Paper (DSP).

I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 2-1/4" x 3-1/2".  I stamped the "Happy Birthday" from the "Happy Birthday Gorgeous" set using Night of Navy ink.  I added a 2-1/2" x 3-3/4" piece of Night of Navy cardstock behind it.  Then I tied the ribbon around the piece.  Actually I tied some type of sailor's knot and taped the ends on the back.  Then I used Dimensionals to set the panel in place.

I stamped the flowers from the "Daisy Delight" set using Daffodil Delight ink and Whisper White cardstock.  I needed 4 flowers, two per.  I taped the flowers together and set them in place using Dimensionals. I added the new "Gold Faceted Gems" to the center of each flower and the card was done!

Very simple, quick and pretty too!
