A Spring Birthday Card



Welcome to my post for Craft Junkie Too's Crafty Designers! Today we are sharing spring projects. My mom's birthday is tomorrow, so I thought it would be fun to make her a card with some bright, springy colors. When I saw this newsprint background stamp from Papertrey Ink, I had to have it, since the date on it is her birthday! Well, maybe not the year, LOL!


My flowers were created with button and flower dies, and they are popped up on foam squares. The Papertrey Ink dies work great with the Cuttlebug! I added one more flower to the inside of my card, along with a sentiment.
