For my card today I used the new Die-namics Large Leafy Flourish die. I die cut the large leafy flourish using kraft card and then used the negative part for my card. I layered this over green designer paper and added stitching using a white gel pen.

The sentiment is from the MFT Stamps Big Greetings stamp set.

For the inside of my card I used the positive portion of the Die-namics Large Leafy Flourish die and attached it to the left side of my card. The Happy Birthday sentiment is another sentiment from the Big Greetings stamp set.
