Happy Birthday card .

Happy Monday everyone !!! 

Today we start a new challenge at
The theme this week is Cricut Letters or phrase .

Since tomorrow is my sister Angies birthday , 
I thought it would be perfect to create a card with
a birthday sentiment . I use the Fancy Frames

Here is a close up of the phrase " Happy Birthday " welded to the frame . I added pink and gold embossing , to add a little more texture. 

Here is the inside of it . 
It is great for a gift card and a handwritten sentiment .
