Happy Birthday Wishes

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a card I created for a friend of my who celebrated her birthday this month. As my friend loves poppies, I wanted to use the Susan's Garden Garden Notes Poppy die set from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

As you can see I created a Pivot Card using the Katie Label Pivot Card die set designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

To decorate the edges of my card I used the Agatha Edges die set.

Here is the inside of my card, I added a poppy to each of the labels on the card. 

I wanted to use the new "A Way with Word" dies for the sentiment and I wanted it to say Birthday in there. As the Happy Birthday sentiment would have been too big for this card I decided to cut two of the Happy Birthday sentiments and cut apart the Happy and Birthday. I used the Happy on the front of the card and the Birthday on the inside. I also used the Wishes from the Best Wishes die set.

After cutting apart the Happy from the birthday ... the "h" in the word birthday was a little messy, so I cut another "h" from the word wishes and added it to the word birthday ... it fitted perfectly.

Here is a look at my card from the back.
