Love & Affection -Yay You! Birthday Card

Happy Monday!
I hope you had a great week - and that you are here for some stamping inspiration.
My card for you today is one that I made with some stamping friends yesterday afternoon.  Everyone loved the simple layout and we all had a great time making this card.  We even came up with some alternate ideas and I will make one to show you next week.

Clean and simple card
