Happy Birthday

Hey there! Today, I'm sharing a card that is fairly quick to make. However, it took me forever to come up with how to embellish it. I hate when that happens. I needed a birthday card and for the life of me kept thinking the design was not good enough. Finally, I had enough and just went with it!

Enjoy your day and thanks for visiting.

The two winners from yesterday did not contact me within 24 hours, so...hopefully today's winners will!
