Happy Birthday, Yet Again!

Saturday, March 29, 2014

I can't believe that March is nearly in the rear-view mirror for us! I went to two local scrapbook shops today and had so much fun looking through their inventory. The papers, embellishments, stamps, tools... everything really, are endless! I picked up some things at both stores and can't wait to show you the cards I've made with them already.

There are some cards that are always good to have in stock - like birthday cards; and today I'm back with another birthday card! Using the clean and graphic style, I created this simple birthday card for March's Challenge #6 at The Card Concept.

I simply cut a piece of bright chevron cardstock and a smaller piece of vellum and layered them together. I used two words: happy / birthday from Kolette Hall's collection from the Silhouette Store. I love all of her word designs and bought myself quite a few with all of the cut files being 50% this month (thank you gift card from when I purchased my Silhouette!). 
I have a co-worker whose birthday is on Tuesday (yes, April Fools Day), so I think I will give this to her. it will be my first handmade card I've given to anyone but my mom or grandma! 

Hope you are having a great weekend!
