Simple Birthday Card

Hey Everyone,

Happy Friday!  Today's card was made using this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, and over at The Kraft Journal, we were asked to create a clean and simple project.

My card:
I chose Whisper White card base, with layers of White card stock and Kraft card stock.  I then added texture to the Very Vanilla layer with the En Francais background stamp. I used my favorite flower die - Blossom Party Die - as the focal point.  The sentiment is from Petite Pairs, and was stamped in Early Espresso ink.  A trio of coordinating button, ribbon and white twine finish off the details.
Also sharing:
Seize the Birthday - "Toppings" option is Tags.
Thanks for stopping by today,
