August is probably the month with the most birthdays for our family, so I have been getting my cards made ahead of time. I finally found this October Afternoon Thrift Shop "Needs Paint" paper, and couldn't wait to try it. This card uses both coordinating sides, the stripe and the floral. I thought the Hero Arts flowers were perfect to mimic the little bouquets in the print; I paper-pieced the flowers with some Cosmo Cricket Material Girl paper. This will be entered into Caardvark's Birthday Card challenge.
