Happy Birthday With Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set

Alice Wessinger

One of my "ghost stampers",  Alice Wessinger made the above card for me to showcase today.  I absolutely love this card and hope you will too.  This card would make a great Happy Birthday card as shown in this photo.  It would also make a nice sympathy, thinking of you, thank you or other card with a change of the sentiment.  A great card for so many reasons.
