Simple "Card Parts" Birthday

I really wanted to make some cards yesterday, but just couldn't do it.  So, I'm sharing a super-simple card I made last week. 

The image in the center came from my "card parts" pile.  I mounted it on foam squares, then I mounted the middle layer on foam squares.  Before putting it on the card base, I used a square Nestability to emboss the frame on the card front.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Birthday Basics set.  When it was complete (or so I thought!) it just didn't seem finished, so I hand-doodled the border on the middle layer.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

HI Lynette,
Just playing catchup. Loving your latest cards and the excellent way you used your MS link punch in your last post.
But I have to say I love this card. It is so elegant and stylish and beautifully put together.

I love this card Lynette. It has given me a wonderful idea. I'm too poorly to post at the moment as I have tonsillitis :-(
