Smell Lovely Birthday

Handmade Cards Ideas


Birthday Greeting Card


I have not used this stamp for a long time and decided to use it for a birthday girl who loves planting flowers, wishing her a happy birthday and all the flowers in her garden will bloom to her heart’s content!

I chose all light colors as it gives a very spring and happy feel.
