Bold Birthday Card


bold youre so lovely bday card

This card was inspired by a card (titled “Thanks For Bee-ing There“) created by Yana Smakula on the My Favorite Things blog.

I had just cut a black card out of a repurposed embossed piece, and I knew I wanted to put bold colors onto it before I saw the card by Yana. Her card just made me scramble back to the craft table!
