Birthday Wishes card

Good afternoon!  I made this card for my best friend's birthday last weekend, her favorite color is purple, so when I saw the polka dot paper in my Bold Basics stack by Recollections, I knew I had to use it for her card!!  I love these shades of green and purple together!

I based my card on the sketch below, from Scrapbook Steals Monday Card Madness #78 - I loved this sketch and will definitely be using it again!  My card came together so quickly using it!
Here's my card!  I used my new stamps from The Stamps of Life 'birthday2celebrate' set - both the sentiment and the gift were from that set.  The buttons were from my stash, as well as the cardstock I used to make the card base with.  I cut the banner shape out by hand and the scalloped circle is from the chipboard elements that came with my Art Philosophy bundle.

A side view so you can see the dimension!

Here's the inside - I used the same polka dot paper as well as a piece of white cardstock so I can write my message.  The sentiment stamp is from the same set that I used above.

I stamped the envelope with a stamp from the 'greetings4birthday'  - another set from The Stamps of Life.

Have a great Thursday!


  1. Very fun and bright. Love the buttons

  2. CUTE!! Love, love, LOVE how you're doing the insides of the cards too!
