Hi everyone!! Happy Sunday!!

I've been getting super stampy lately, and it feels SO good!!  I've had a few birthday cards to create...it seems that every weekend is another birthday party for my oldest to attend.  I have to tell you...the 1st grade girl set is pretty much obsessed with Justice, thus, Gift Card Greetings is a lifesaver in my world!

For my card, I started with the fabulous Mojo Monday Sketch, MOJO275, and all of the patterned papers are Fourteen from Crate Paper.  I used Kraft cardstock and the Gift Card Pocket Vertical Die-Namics to house my gift card, and using the chalkboard technique that is SO popular lately, I stamped "HB2U", first embossing it with white embossing powder and then stamping it again, a bit over, in white ink.

Here is a closeup.  I also sponged the edges with some white ink to really make it stand out.

The flower was cut from Pink Lemonade Cardstock using the Pretty Posies Die-Namics, and I dusted off my crimper (yep, still have one of those) to add the texture.  I added a Whip Cream Button in the center tied with Hemp Cord.  This is all layered over a bit of Kraft Grosgrain Ribbon.

On the inside I added more patterned paper, and stamped "Happy Birthday", from More Essential Sentiments, just as I did the sentiment on the front.

Here are the MFT goodies I've used on my card:
