Artfully Sent Happy Birthday!

I keep saying it - I love this cartridge - the more I use it, the more I'm loving it!

This card is a 5x7" card - I did try it smaller and even with my beloved Explore, it just worked better at the larger size.

It came from Artfully Sent, cut at 5x7" and the sentiment is from one of the 3 stamp sets that comes with the cartridge, stamped in Black ink.  I used Gold shimmer trim and our Glue pen.

Have an amazing day!
