Happy Birthday Jen!



I made a gift for my friend who celebrated her birthday yesterday. She loves sunflowers, so I tried to stamp some for her!



I used "From the Desk of" template to package her goodies, Background Basics: Retro for the dotted line background, Life for the sunflowers, and the sentiment comes from Vitage Picnic.

Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful!!! I love how you stamped the background stamp on an angle and how you stamped the tiny flower as a flower center. Love the card layout!
