You’re Fabulous

I’m on a roll making birthday cards these days. Somehow I am in short supply. I just love this sentiment from the FREE Approaching Perfection Sale-a-bration Stamp Set. For this pretty card I dug out the Peony Dies to make another beautiful 3-D flower for the focal point and then prettied up all around it with the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper, also FREE from the Sale-a-bration Catalog. The Lovely Labels Pick A Punch makes it quick and easy to make beautiful matted labels. Look closely, this card uses only Stamps, Ink and Paper for some #simplestamping.
