When you are making birthday cards, or any card for that matter, keep a look out for stickers that are on sale. I found a pack of one with beautiful flowers that were on clearance.
The particular sticker I chose from the pack already had glitter and gems so I didn't have to embellish it any more.
This handmade birthday card was inspired by the chipboard sticker. I used the colors on the sticker to help coordinate the colors for the card.
I used a decorative corner punch to enhance the corners and used a half inch corner punch for the sentiment and border around the sentiment. The rounded corners help soften the card. The satin bow is the finishing touch.
