Clean and Simple Birthday

Here's a quickie clean and simple birthday card. I'm on a roll with clean and simple, aren't I? This is new! I think what made the difference for me was starting with nice thick watercolor paper instead of plain old cardstock. It makes a real difference.

For this card I stamped the image from the SU set called Mostly Flowers in Blue Breezes Kaleidacolor rainbow ink then I punched them out with a square punch. They are mounted with foam tape to add some dimension.
The sentiment is from the It's Your Birthday SU set and a couple of Swarovski crystals really balances things out.

Someone from the Gingerwood birthday list is getting this card but I can't remember who because I mailed a whole STACK of cards out yesterday. Whoever it is, I hope they enjoy it!

Thanks for stopping by... see you tomorrow!
