A 10 Minute Birthday Card

Create a simple birthday card with Stampin Up Petal Palette & Petals & More Framelits Dies - Mary Fish StampinUp Idea

Honestly, this birthday card may have taken closer to five minutes than ten to create.  The simple spring elements from Petal Palette stamp set blend beautifully.  The bird and sentiment were cropped using coordinating dies from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies.
