A Quick Birthday Card

Nothing special, just a quick birthday card to post today.  I often find that when I need a birthday card unexpectedly, there is nothing in my stash that works... so I'm committed to making up some fairly simple cards to keep on hand, whenever I can.  I am also committed to continually dig into my stash of paper to use it up!  So I've found some pretty ancient Close To My Heart papers, and I put together two of these this afternoon:
Patterned papers are Let's Get Together; Stamp set is You Mean the World to Me; Cardstock is Colonial White, Cranberry & Garden Green; Ink is Black - all Close To My Heart; Butterfly die is Taylored Expressions, Stitched Square die is My Favorite Things.

Ha! I have that paper!! And lots of it, come to think of it. I've gone on a crafting fast this year, so ideas that use things I already have are fabulous. Thanks for the inspiration!

Wonderful card and great idea - to use up stash and have some in the ready box :-) TFS
