Happy Birthday Card for Kara

Today our sweet daughter Kara celebrates her 23rd birthday.  This is the first birthday in 23 years that we will not get to spend with her.  She's furthering her education so it's for a good reason. :)  We will see her soon and celebrate.  She already has an order in for an Oreo layer cake. ;)  She is such a ray of sunshine and has brought so much joy to our lives.  Happy Birthday Kara.  We Love You So Much!

Now for her birthday card that I mailed to her.  It's so simple, but I love the colors, papers and how it turned out.

Pattern papers are from DCWV.  Kraft colored paper is called Crumb Cake from SU!  Happy is a word strip from the Silhouette online store as is the banner.  The word birthday is a font from my computer.

I added a couple brads to the banner, a couple photo corners to the mats and a little ink along the edges.  You could easily add a few flowers or other embellishments, but I had to hurry to get in the mail so I kept it really simple. :)


  1. Pretty card...great pic of your daughter. Lee-Ann :)
