How to Make a Gorgeous Birthday Card using the Happiest of Days Stamp Set

I read somewhere that August is the most popular birth month, so what better reason is there to have some birthday cards on hand?!? I've got an absolutely gorgeous birthday card to share with you today, and step-by-step instructions for you to make it!

I just love the elegance of this card. My talented friend Rachael designed this one. Isn't it just beautiful? I love the soft colors with the pop of Bermuda Bay and those sequins!
