Cheery Birthday Wishes

I was hoping to get this posted before the storm rolled through but alas, I'm typing with lightening all around me!!!  So then I got smart and went on the laptop on battery power!  

My sister and I was at Terri's FABULOUS Stamp-a-Stack on Thursday night and this was something like one of the cards she had on display.  I didn't have the same decorative newsprint paper for the bottom but I did have some printed out from the Night & Day download so I used that instead.  You can use whatever paper you have, anything printed like a newspaper will work there.

The words are from the "Happiest Birthday Wishes" set.  I didn't think I had those words and when I was looking through my stamps I found it so of course I had to use it!  

The flower was done by using a couple of punches and adding a rhinestone brad in the middle.  

The black strip in the back is a piece of ribbon.  

The top is a white piece of card stock that was dry embossed with the dotted folder.  

There isn't a lot to making this card and it did go together rather quickly.  The original card is an easel card.  There were two small flowers at the bottom that held the card up when it was opened.  I opted to make this into a regular normal fold card.  The original card was made by one of Terri's downline. I don't know who the talented gal is but if you do, please let me know so I can give her credit!

This was a very fun and cheery card to make!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
