You know how much I love the adorable Dress Up Collection by Stampin' Up!, and I have been using the Dress Up Framelits (#130101) to make cute girlfriend Birthday cards!

Dress up sunshine sprinkles card

This dress form is set off by placing it on a Whisper White die cut from the Apothecary Accents framelits (#127003)

I used Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Paper for the background and for the dress, and then I used a Stampin' Up! Doily (#129399) that I dyed with some Regal Rose ink in a cup of water!

A bow of Rose Red Seam Binding Ribbon (#121844) at the waist finishes off this dress.

The Happy Birthday stamp (from one of the MOST OVERLOOKED stamp sets, "Made for You", pg 44 in the Annual catalog, #126340/126342) is stamped on a die cut tag from the Labels Collection Framelits (#125598)... I added some extra happiness to the tag with the Stampin' Paper Piercer (#126189) and the Festive Paper Piercing Pack (#127857).

My 2nd birthday greeting also features the Dress Up Dies in a snazzy color combo of Calypso Coral and Midnight Muse! 

Did you know you can make a cute collar for these dresses????  See below for instructions.

Don't you love the script background? It's a piece of printed paper from the Print Poetry Package, found on pg 16 in the Spring Stampin' Up! catalog, #129312.

Happy Day to You is found on pg 137 of the Annual Catalog and is available in wood or clear (#126149 / 126151).

Midnight Muse In Color ribbon makes a cute belt! #126847

The cute flower is from the Decorate A Daisy set, pg 115 Annual Catalog, #125989 / 125991.  I used it for both the collar and the punched flower below.  Top it all off with an In Color Designer Printed Brad, #122940.
