Challenge JUGS7 Birthday card

Hello and Happy Sunday!
hope you guys are enjoying your weekend! I sure am :) Early this morning I participated in a blog hop for Sassy Studio Designs (I know, I am obsessed with their images! But I can't help it!!), had lunch with my hubby's parents and now enjoying some movies with my dear hubby.
I have never participated in Just Us Girls challenges (you can visit them at:, but it all looks so interesting, so I thought I would give it a try. This week's challenge is to use Dry Embossing (brass stencils and light box, cuttlebug, folders and nesties), but it also has a twist- to make a project for a Birthday!
So here is my attempt:
I used "Happy Birthday" Cuttlebug folder. I drew a dress freehand, then cut it out using designer paper and folded the skirt to add more dimension. And of course added glitter :)
Here is my dress:
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
