Layers, ribbon and a background stamp are taken under consideration when designing this simple card. While making color and stamp choices take forever, putting the pieces together goes fairly quickly. I made two copies of this card for friends with back-to-back April birthdays.

Oh, wow! I just love this! I just got this stamp set--I think because I saw the one you ordered. It's so cute! Love this wheel in the background and the beautiful colors you chose. Coral happens to be one of my favorite colors! Great job! Love the image in the punched circle!

I love this, what a great idea to make a window for a small stamp. I love your colors, I have started making two cards when I start one, then I always have a spare as I always seem to need it, TFS
