3rd Thursday birthday cards continued....

Third Thursday Class ~ final card

My THIRD THURSDAY CARD CLASS always has three cards and everyone makes two cards ~ three designs.  The theme changes monthly and, obviously, this month was BIRTHDAY CARDS.  Here is the last card from the February Class.  The design is directly from Stampin' Up! and was a Make & Take at our convention in 2011.  I really liked the card and the idea of using Note Cards and Envelopes in such a fun way.  I hope you like it!
