With the New Year comes birthdays.....

I have many friends that will be celebrating their birthdays in January so I thought I should get a head start on making some birthday cards.  Here is a birthday card that I made the other night.  I got the card layout/design from a Stampin' Success Magazine (exclusive to Stampin' Up! Demonstrators).  I didn't CASE it totally, I did make some tweaks and changes to it.  I just may have to use this card layout/design more often I am quite pleased with the way it turned out. I like the different way you can use Stampin' Up! products and how they all compliment each other.  I also like the Whisper White end at the bottom of the card.  Keep a watch for different ways I will be using this card layout.  Also please give the card layout/design a try at home, it is super easy to make.
