Pink Flowered Birthday

This beautiful pink flowered birthday card is delicate and decorated for someone special.  You can create a handful for all the special people you want to celebrate with this year.  I love to create a card stash at the beginning of each year, however, it means changing up colors and designs as well. After that, you just put all your creations together in a safe place to use throughout the year.  Lastly, always have fun.
