Spunky Funky Birthday...and a little George Washington!

I LOVE birthdays, don't you? I always love bright and cheerful colors for birthday cards, whether it's for an adult or for a child! ;)

Double the fun birthday w/money holder

I used the birthday cake stamp, the sentiment, and the candle from this set called Birthday Expressions! Super fun set!

The candle is straight, so for the two outer candles, I curved the clear stamp just a tad and then inked it up.

For the money holder on the right side of the card, I placed 2 ribbon loops to the backside of the front flap. I measured the width of the ribbon hole to securely fit a dollar bill. Rolled it really tight, then inserted....once it is in, release your fingers and the dollar bill will expand to fit nice and snug.

Enjoy and have a great day!
