Happy Make-it-Monday!  Do you have the day off today?  I have an easy and bright birthday card you can make.  The large sentiments in the Life is Grand stamp set makes it really easy to make today’s card.  I especially like that the Life is Grand stamp set has coordinating stamps for the insides of the card.
