Simple Birthday Wishes- SU only card

Hi guys! Hope your weekend is wonderful so far. Ours has been really busy. Yesterday was simply nuts. I am looking forward to sitting down at my desk and playing with large quantities of stamping stuff as soon as possible this afternoon. You should do the same! ;)

Today's card is extremely simple but I bother to post it because I wanted to mention something we all need to remember. Sometimes, we get caught up in the latest materials and techniques and think our projects have to be bigger and better in order to share with others. Well, every time I end up giving a card that I worried was too simple, I am reminded that the "non-stamping" world doesn't have a clue what the latest "stuff" is all about. They just love that someone thought enough of them to actually make a card for them. Remember this the next time you are in need of a card and think you don't have time to make one. Take a look...
This card took me less than 15 minutes to make. It was probably closer to 10 minutes actually. Really! I picked one of my favorite prints from the Greenhouse Gala DSP and paired it with matching card stock, which in this case is Baja Breeze. A couple Paper Daisies accented with some ribbon (retired So Saffron 5/8" grosgrain) and a button are all I used for embellishment. The sentiment could be anything you chose here but since I needed a birthday card, I used that perky little "birthday wishes" image from the new SAB set called So Happy for You. Finished! Easy peasy! See? We really don't have an excuse to buy a card. Ever. ;)
