Birthday card - versions 1 and 2

Here's a birthday card that I had to get in the post today.
This is what it originally looked like.

version 1
Colour combo is Pool Party and White
Flowers stamped using Petite Petals and cut with the matching punch.
Circle Framelits used to cut an aperture in base card.
Stamp sets used for sentiments - Express Yourself and Blooming with Kindness

And here's the version that went out in the post

Version 2
I had an accident with version 1 - I was trying to rub off a little bit of glue
off the inside with a glue rubber and I must have been too heavy handed as it ripped 
the top layer of the paper and totally ruined the inside of the card.
I cut the front off the card and stamped the greeting on another piece of card,
glued the card front on top of the sentiment, then layered onto a larger base card.
Think I like the second version better anyhow!
what do you think?


  1. Love version two! The colour is really lovely...nice a summery. I really like this style of card.
