Welcome to Simple Sunday!!

Every Sunday, I create a simple card for my readers that prefer a simple but pretty card that they can make quickly.   

This week, I am using the Prettiest Birthday Bundle.  The stamp set and the dies can be purchased separately, or as a bundle and save 10%.

I embossed the image with Silver Embossing Powder.  If you have not tried heat embossing, I encourage you to give it a try.  I promise you, you will be hooked!
