Yes, it is always somebody's birthday and to celebrate, here at Cards in Envy we are looking for  fabulous, beautiful, fun BIRTHDAY CARDS for this challenge!  Just remember, to join in on this challenge, your cards must be A2 SIZE ONLY (4.25" x 5.5") AND flat enough to fit in an envelope for mailing.

Our designers this time are celebrating in a big way!  Enjoy their inspiration and click on the blog links by their names for a closer look and more details.  This is the last challenge for three of our designers--Denise, Danie and Kristie.  We will miss them and their fabulous cards and hope they can join us now and then as a challenge participant.  But don't worry--we have three new designers joining us and they will be added to our Designer page in the next few weeks and will be introduced in our first challenge in August!
