Happy Birthday – by Deb Saaranen

Good Friday morning to all!

Today Deb is sharing a lovely, vibrant birthday card she created with our NEW Birthday Blessings clear stamp set and some lovely papers from Graphic 45. It’s such a cheerful card! Take a look:

I can just feel the coming spring and summer in this card.

As always, I {{{ love }}} a good mix of patterns, and Deb nailed it here. Stripes, dots, checks and flowers — and they all blend together beautifully!

The added detail from the narrow lace is so pretty.

The perfect greeting is stamped to mail your card to a friend who is away.

And this is Deb’s completed inside.

I also {{{ love }}} that greeting for a simply beautiful birthday!

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