Happy Birthday Friend!



I hope everyone is having a great day. I can't believe it's Wednesday already!

This is a card I made for my friend's birthday, and I thought I'd share it.  It's a simple one, but it was fun to make and I used some of my stash, and those things are very important.

The fruit pictures are from a sheet of fruits and veggies paper, but I only wanted to use fruit for my sweet neighbor (awww...).  I cut them out with scissors that had a mini scallop design, and used a blue mini ric-rac that mimicked the scallop along those edges.

I used Diamond Glaze to stick some seed beads to the blueberries, and Stickles to jazz up the plums and raspberries.

I'm thinking that this would also make a great "thank you" or "I was thinking sweet thoughts about you" card...
