Papercraft Star #134-Birthdays

We have a super easy challenge this week at Papercraft Star-Birthdays!  It seems you can never have enough birthday cards.  In fact, this one went into the mail as soon as I finished it..........and just wait until you see the inside!

The inspiration photo is use if you choose, as long as your entry has a birthday theme you are good to go! 

My flowers were cut with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge and then stamped with the coordinating Girls Rock Stamp Set.  The inspiration for my card comes from the super talented Deanna Jean.  She is the superstar of CAS cards and this week's MUSE for MUSE Challenge #6.  Here is her inspiration card for the week-

I loved her cluster of 3-D flowers and carried the theme onto my creation!  Thanks so much Deanna for the inspiration! Now for a look at the inside....

A belated Birthday card!  How sad it that....the card maker has to send belated birthday cards....not because she does not have birthday cards.....just because she never mailed the birthday card and the birthday has come and gone!  What can I say...I will try better next year!
