Birthday Wishes

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have another birthday card featuring the very beautiful Buttons and Blooms collection from Heartfelt Creations.  I love the panels that come with the paper collections as they make cardmaking very quick and easy.  Add foam tape to add dimension and then just add your embellishments and you are good to go.
