Happy First Birthday!


It's CAS-ual Friday's First Birthday and the challenge is to join the celebration by creating a clean and simple birthday card. Here is my card.


I used a partial die cutting technique that I learned in the online class, A Cut Above, with Papertrey Ink's Butterfly Dreams stamp set and matching die. I like how quickly the card came together and that I got to use a technique to add a bit of interest. I may have added too many butterflies, though. Not so clean, but fairly simple.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your sweet comments, too. I hope you all have a crafty week!
