I'm excited to finally participate in WOW Wednesday.  I needed to re-stock my mom's and my card stash for a while.  When Cat had her latest big sale, I grabbed some birthday paper that is perfect for making birthday cards.  The paper is by American Crafts and I love how easy it was to make birthday cards with it.  I made the card above without even using a stamp!  The birthday candle paper is embossed and adds some fun texture to the card.  The ribbon is by Offray and the cardstock is by Bazzill and Wausau.
This is more of the same paper collection.  I cut around some of the balloons to make a scalloped pocket to slip the happy birthday tag inside.  The stamp is by Imaginisce and is one of their "Snag Em" stamps.  I used my handy dandy "We R" Corner Chomper to make my tag and the tiny attacher to attach the ribbon, which is by May Arts.  The cardstock is by Wausau.
