Easy Breezy Birthday Card

Good morning stampers!
Want to see a super easy card?!

I received a version of this card in a recent swap and the original designer did not include their name with it. I'd love to credit you, so please let me know if it was your project, ok?

The card starts with a simple base of Whisper White. The next layer is a piece of Gable Green, which is retiring this month. That layer was stamped with the palm frond from Tropical Party in Gable Green ink.
I used my Big shot to cut out two pieces, the Melon Mambo Scalloped Circle and the Whisper White circle. I stamped the birthday greeting from the On Your Birthday stamp set on the white cardstock piece. The image was colored with Stampin' Write Markers - Gable Green and Melon Mambo. These two pieces were layered together and then onto the Gable Green panel and I used my Paper Snips to trim off the excess at the bottom.

A piece of Melon Mambo ribbon was wrapped around the panel and I added a smaller piece for a 'faux bow' effect. The flower is also from the Tropical Party stamp set and is simply stamped in Melon Mambo ink on white cardstock. I trimmed it out, added a green brad to the center and popped it up on a Stampin' Dimensional.
After stamping an additional flower on the inside of the card, it was done - super easy!
If you like this card, then come to Just Cards class this month - you'll be making this beauty!

Thanks for stopping in to visit today!
