Yellow Sunshine Birthday Card

Yellow sunshine birthday card is a simple happy birthday card. Why? Because this card design is based on a card sketch. If you want an easy time in making your own handmade cards, following card sketches will save you time and help you create pretty cards.

With a “plan” in hand, all I had to do is to play around with my papers and think of what embellishment to use. It reduces the fuss of moving stuff around the card a lot to get a nice design.
