Happy Birthday – by Holly McMillen

Good Monday morning! I awoke to a layer of fresh white snow on the ground, so the flowers in Holly’s birthday card today are especially uplifting! Holly created a very quick and easy card that is sure to WOW anyone. She used purchased flowers and a vine die to create her beautiful focal point sitting on a crisp white background. Take a look:

HBR1 640x520

How very, very pretty! Love that petite floral sheet of paper.

And the fact that this is a quick make, makes is all the better.

This card fits perfectly into our A2 Clear Boxes – perfect for both protection and presentation.

You can find Holly’s post on her blog here.
