Bright Birthday

My color selection for the cards I make tends to shift with the seasons, but I never get tired of the bright colors! Turquoise and orange are such a lively combination. What's really neat about these colors is that they can be used for a male or female card.
This card was pretty simple, but I love how it turned out. I used the same layout as some of the Holiday cards I have in my Etsy shop right now. The front flap is a half-flap. The stamped words along the side are actually on the inside of the card, but are visible the entire time.
I stamped the words in orange first. Then on a seperate piece of carstock, I stamped them again in turquoise. I cut a few of the turquoise words out and glued them on to the orange. Voila!
