Happy Birthday

May is a busy month. Okay, I am being nice. May is a crazy busy month. Just in my family alone there are 7 birthdays. Then we have Mother's Day. Two friends birthday. And then to make it even crazier, Chris and I decided to get married in May as well. It keeps us on our toes.

I was able to play for a good bit in my scrapbook room this past weekend because it was rainy all day long. I knew I had to make 2 birthday cards so I went ahead and got those done so they were off of my mind.

This is the first one:

The paper used here is all from a paper pack from My Mind's Eye called Happy Go Lucky. I loved all the bright colors that went along with the navy. The butterfly, small flowers, twine, jewels and Happy Birthday sentiment are all from Stampin' Up.

I did my best to try using a bunch of different patterned papers to give it a fun look and to spark my creativity a little more. I had a fun time with this one. I even took it a step further and decorated the envelope. Since I was hand delivering it I didn't have to worry about not having an address on it.

The stamp set on the front of the card is from Paper Smooches. I love the font and can see myself using these a lot! I also decided to use washi tape instead of licking the back. YUCK! My friend loved the card and that makes me happy.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a great day!
