B-G-S Birthday

Well, it's now 11:30pm. I got this card made earlier this afternoon, but since I took the photos all kinds of obstacles have come up. I hope I squeeze under the wire in the 3 Challenges I'm entering it in.
Dutch Dare Card Challenges-DDCC #68: Oh Joy gave the instructions for a Joy Fold card. I always say I'm not the puzzle girl, but I always seem to be drawn to these different folded cards. The instructions were great and the measurements spot on. The flourishes for Humble Pie Stamps-Challenge #2-Flourishes are around the journal box on the inside and, of course, the piece de resistaunce(that's not spelled right Linda, for a bit of southern flair :-), is the Gold, Silver, Black, and White at The Play Date Cafe-PDCC11-gold-silver-black-white Metallics.
A very different card and since it's hard to come up with guy cards, I think this one might fit the bill.

Supplies: Joy Fold card, Papers: white, black, gold card stock unknown, DCWV-The Glitter Stack, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Jet Black, VersaMark Ink pad, CTMH Silver embossing powder, Sharpie Poster Paint Gold and Silver markers, Stamps: Fiskars-how many candles, Scrappy Cat-Birthday Wishes, CTMH-D1201 Frame of Mind, Stampin Up-Birthday Whimsy, EK Success-heart punch, 1 1/2" circle punch, Cuttlebug embossing folder-Spots & Dots, Karen Foster-big time brads, glue dots.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G
