A bright and happy birthday card for a special person

Isn’t it amazing?

One piece of DSP, one stamp and a couple embellishments!

That’s all it takes!

Now I have to admit. This particular piece from the package was my LEAST favourite. So I forced myself to use it! I figured if I could turn it into a card I liked then every SINGLE piece from this package is worth the mere thirty-eight cents (tax and shipping included)!

Look at all the wonderful watercoloured pieces in the package.
