Polka Dot Parade Beautiful Birthday Card

Have you seen the bright pretty colors in the new Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper Pack?  The double sided DSP has large polka dot circles on one side, and then white polka dots on the reverse.  I really like the white polka dot side best, how about you?DSP and butterfly punch with bling

Today’s card share features the Beautiful Birthday single stamp, and Papillion Parade stamped butterfly with a matching  butterfly punch.decorative label punched birthday and elegant butterflyStamped in Rich Razzleberry ink to match the pretty polka dot parade DSP, the sentiment was punched using the Decorative Label punch.don't you just love th rhinestone jewels and argyle folder?After punching the stamped butterfly image it was attached to the argyle embossed Rich Razzleberry card stock using stampin’ dimensional dots and a little bling was added to the butterfly via rhinestones basic jewels.double loop bow tied on my fingers so easily!Couldn’t help but add a pretty double loop bow with mini glue dots… usually I pinch wider ribbon and add a glue dot to hold the pinch in place but I forgot to do that before attaching the bow on today’s card… stuff happens!  Fortunately, I can still fix the wide organza ribbon showing beneath the bow before mailing this card!

I think the polka dot paper may be my favorite new DSP. Love your card--the color, sentiment font, bling, and pretty bow.
