Wow, it was easy to make a birthday card but it was hard to not use the ever popular Pink or Blue on my card!  So I chose to go with Green and Purple and I used the awesome rubber stamp “Dorothy”.


I made a pocket card with a cute little tag for the pocket.  The designer paper is from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea paper pad.  I made the purple doily using an MS corner punch.  This is a great way to make your own doilies!  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves are also an MS punch.


This is the tag that goes inside the pocket of the card.  I used the Spellbinders Build A Tag Two die.  The sentiment is from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!  Hope you can play with us this week and I look forward to seeing all your gorgeous creations!  Don’t forget to hop over and see all the other Krafty Girls.  I’m sure they have lots of awesomeness to show you!
