Inspirational Birthday Card

Hello all my crafty friends!  I'm back today to share a sweet little card for Classy Cards 'N Such showcasing some of their lovely papers from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss Collection.  
I used three different patterned papers from that lovely collection, and a coordinating chipboard frame from the same collection.  Some of the sweet embellishments include some Spooled Twines from Doodlebug and a darling Happy Birthday sentiment from the Inspirational Birthday Rubz Set from My Sentiments Exactly.  I punched the butterfly from the same paper pad, added some pearl accents, a stick pin, and a couple of paper flowers from my stash.  There are also two staples in the upper right-hand corner just for fun.

This set of Rubz - Birthday Inspirational is awesome because it has the Happy Birthday sentiment in the set, which I used on the outside/bottom of the card, and it also comes with a birthday sentiment that I placed on the inside of the card by matting it on the same Simple Stories Vintage Bliss papers.   I also added a snippet of washi tape and another pearl accent under that
I encourage you to check out all the delightful trims, Rubz, and embellishments from Classy Cards 'n Such that are sure to help make your cards stand out.  Happy crafting!
