{Another Birthday Card}

Here's a quick post of another birthday card for my stash! Hopefully I can get some more ready before I actually start teaching. Our first day of school is August 19th---I always hate that...going back so early---until the end of May rolls around and we get out! :) My sister's children don't go back to school until after Labor Day, but they also go well into June----always a trade-off!

I made this card using Everyday Button Bits. This set is so fun! I've been a huge fan of buttons for awhile, but this set is amazing! If I could only buy one set from Papertrey right now, I'd buy this one---I just love the look of it and it's so versatile---you'll love it too! I made several cards at once the other day....all with this set.

This was a quick one with Hibiscus burst as the card base. I stamped the image on Stamper's Select White and cut it out with a Labels Four die. I used some Bitty Box basics paper in Aqua Mist and used vintage buttons and grosgrain ribbon. The details are below. Joshua has a friend over and I'm making a meal for someone, so I really SHOULD be off the computer!

Enjoy your evening~
