Happy Birthday, Friend! card made using the Flower Shoppe cartridge

Hello, friends!

I hope you enjoyed my week of giveaways last week. I really enjoyed doing it! I love giving back a little love because you guys give me tons of love everyday!

Today's post is the birthday card that I made for Joy's birthday. I just love making these flowers using the Flower Shoppe cartridge. I think it may be my all time favorite!

The paper, ribbon, and stamps are from Papertrey Ink.
I cut the flower out at 2 1/2".
There was a total of 4 stamp sets used to make this sentiment.


Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to come check back in tomorrow to see the handmade gift I made for Joy using my CRICUT!

PEACE, LOVE, AND CRAFTS!
