Happy Birthday------

Very short post as I need to do dishes and get my room cleaned so the cat does not eat my flowers.  Wait....where did that cat go?

I was over at melonheadz and found the wording that I fell in love with. A few days later (hey I am busy!) I printed it out and made this card for an acquaintance.  I Love the quote and I thought the "in other words happy birthday" was funny.  Stuck to the 2 things I new, her favorite colors :)  Mailing it today so she should get it soon.  I made it simple, under 1 oz. and flat which are challenges in its own! I do not have a car to go to the post office at the moment so 1 stamp mailing is where its at now.

OMgoodness that ribbon really really matches that paper! I must say that my 2 colors with the white was crazy fun and ignoring "square" gave the card an awesome look that I never did before.
