A Birthday Card For My Sister!

Shhh, don't tell my sister but I just made her card today and her birthday was on the 1st!!! She was out of town anyway so I didn't give her the card and gift. I started the year off getting cards done early and now I'm behind. Well, actually now I'm current!!! LOL

I have 3 more birthdays this month and believe it or not I have one of the cards already made. It's for hubby's aunt who's birthday is on St. Patrick's Day!!!

Anyway back to my late card. I used the Stampin' Up! "Echo's of Kindness" set. And I used some retired decorative papers. I believe they are retired!!! It doesn't matter, my sister doesn't know the difference anyway. And it's still a good thing to use up those retired papers!!!

The last few cards I made I felt like I had been struggling so with them I think it was more that I missed doing all the layering I usually do. I felt great after I got this card done. I got to do my fun layering and I like the color purple and I got to color. I had the Happy Birthday words printed out on a full sheet of card stock from a month or so ago. Oh and since this card goes on her present I won't have to spend the extra money to mail it!!! Such a deal!!!! LOL

This card was pretty simple to do too!!! Gotta LOVE that!!! Simple is always good, especially when it turns out the way you had it in mind!!! And this one did!!

Thank you SO much for visiting,
