Bringing Birthday’s Back

While saying Happy Birthday on Facebook is nice  but it often feels a bit “me too”. I want those who are special to me to go to their mailbox and find a handmade card celebrating their special day. Don’t you think that would make someone smile to find a card in the mail?

Shannon West of Stampin’ Up! is creating a movement called #imbringingbirthdaysback and I love the idea. You already know that I create a card for every associate in my office. I create cards for my family but I often am behind the eight ball (remembering too late) in sending a card to my extended family and friends. Well, I want to change that!

I love these two colors together, Mint Macaron and Lost Lagoon. The Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is the main event for my card and I love how it creates a festive feel.

This week’s Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge was the perfect inspiration for my card. I flipped the sketch on its side!
