handmade card: The Spotted Chick: Happy Birthday LouLou! ... kraft base with gel pen faux stitched border ... giant red with white polka dot fills the top third ... cute dog sitting with string in paws ... adorable!!
The stringy-thing in the middle if the card is frustrating. Have a game plan & measure out the string & mark where you attach it. To get the little flags to stay down is up to you. I didn't do the balloon on the front, but the idea is super cute & easy. Good luck! Hand made cards mean more than store bought.
