Happy Birthday--Card Patterns Sketch 123

I just found a really fun sight--Card Patterns Weekly Sketch Blog.  I usually don't do square cards, but what a great sketch.  I just had to give it a try.  I also entered this in Simon Says--Anything Goes Challenge.  I pulled out my Echo Park Paper--A Walk in a Park collection.  I punched (Fiskars) two borders to make my paper flower.   I learned how to do this the other day, I just love them.  I used a button from JoAnn's and baker's twine to finish the flower off.  I made some banners stamped my sentiment, and had myself a new card.  Today I went to find an envelope to fit this card.  That's when I realized I should have researched the normal size for a square card.  My card was too big for any envelopes offered at the local craft stores.  So now I get to make an envelope for my 6"x6" card.  Echo Park Papers has some new collections.  Check them out!
