Instructions:

1. Stamp the front of the card using dotted stamp from the Painted Petals 
    Stamp Set. I used Chocolate Chip Ink Pad & the Sahara Sand Ink Pad. I 
    stamped the dots with the Chocolate Chip Ink then in between I stamped it 
    with Sahara Sand Ink.

2. Stamp the flower from the Crazy About You Stamp Set. Use Old Olive Ink & 
    cut out the flower. Don't for the Pearl Basic Jewel!

3. Cut a piece of Whisper White CS to 1-1/4 x 4. Stamp the "Happy Birthday"

I was able to make these two easy cards using the scrap pieces of The All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack that I had left over from the Easel Card.
