Stampin' Up Iconic Happy Birthday Card for Amy's Inkin' Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to another Amy's Inkin' Krew Blog Hop!  This month we are "celebrating."  Of course that gives us team members a lot of creative freedom.  I decided to use a die set that I fell in love with the first time I thumbed through Stampin' Up Annual Catalog however I just recently purchased it.  I think you will really enjoy it!

Today's card features Stampin' Up Iconic Die Set along with Stampin' Up Special Moments Stamp Set (available free with qualifying purchase starting January 4, 2022 for a limited time).
