Floral Birthday

Sometimes I make a card that is relatively simple and just love how it turns out. This is the card for me. I think the colors and the big bow just got me. I also made it very quickly (something else I like). I had made this card for the StampTV Countdown challenge. I didn't win but I get to keep the card, at least until some lucky recipient gets this card! Do you sometimes find it difficult to part with your favorite cards? I do - in fact that is something that I plan to do more of - send the cards away. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Those colors are so nice together, very striking! It looks so nice on that easel that I'd use it to decorate my house if I had it!
