This is such an easy card to put together thanks to the simple card sketch amd the versatile images that are part of the Flowers of Friendship stamp set.

This card is so versatile – it could be a birthday card, a thinking of you card or as a Thank You card, which I chose for today’s sample. Here’s how I made this card:
