  1. I just made this card and it turned out so cute. Thank you for the wonderful instructions!

  2. I just love this fun card, and the way the Misty Moonlight gives a softer look to these darling bees!

  3. H Mary! Love this card so much making it this morning. I have never done one like this before.
    I did run into a snag with the dimensions you listed for the stamped imagine and misty CS that surrounds it. The misty width dimension is smaller then the stamped imagine. Otherwise these were great instructions.

  4. Only thing I would do different would be to start with a 10″ x 4 1/4″ piece for the card base, score at 2 1/4″ from BOTH ends and then just attach the floral piece to the top flap. Love the papers you used.

  5. Beautiful work here! A pleasure to see how you put your own stamp on Birthday Bonanza!

  6. Beautiful card Mary. This is HANDS DOWN…….One of my favorite card designs.

  7. Anyone would love to receive this card. It is so pretty and the fold is a favorite of mine.
