Happy Birthday Card

Made this super-duper easy birthday card for our friends' grandson.  Just cut a section out from a beach scene design paper, added the colored and cut image and applied the sentiment. 

Shucks, the color is actually more vibrant in real life.  My phone camera isn't the greatest.

Thank you Lianne

I've been MIA for a while.  Hubby and I enjoyed our trip to Japan last month and Maui this past weekend.

When I returned from Maui, I was surprised to receive happy mail from Lianne.  She is definitely a Card Engineer.   I would never attempt to make the fancy and intricate cards she makes.   So professional.   THANK YOU LIANNE!!!!

This is the cute cover with colorful ribbon.

Check out the inside.  Holy cow....SO FANCY!!!  Blows me away.

Here's the 2nd card.   Cute yah?

Pull the tab and out popped this cute bird and tiny bears.

And here's the 3rd 3!!!

Pull the tab and out pops this sweet sentiment.
