I wanted to hand-make a birthday card for my mom this year. It's her 49th year here so I wanted to make the last year of her 40s a little extra special. These are three designs that I made today. I ended up choosing the one on the top for her since it was large enough on the inside to write a nice message for her. The middle card is still a little plain for my taste so I need to decide on what to do to add some pizzazz. And the bottom card... I like it but it just didn't have the room to write a birthday note.
