I've mentioned the cards I made last year that I never uploaded pictures of. Well, I still intend to do that, but I thought it might be nice to share what else I've done.
I used the same paper as I used in the card above.
I modified this from the Dreaming Tree version. I removed the holly berrys and leaves and in their place, cut out "Happy Birthday". And under the cut outs, I placed gold foil cardstock, to tie it all in with the gold in the cardstock.
