#CardsForUkraine Birthday Edition

Hi Crafty Friends,
I created 3 Birthday cards for you featuring #cardsforUkraine colors in support of peace in Ukraine. I was inspired by a few challenges. Three from Paper Trey Ink (listed below), ModSquad, and Time Out's 8th Birthday Challenge. I hope these will bring a smile to the face of my Ukrainian crafty friends who have birthdays this month. I learned the double embossing technique from Wanda on the PTI blog. Dry embossing folders rubbed with versa mark so you can use heat embossing to add the glitter part!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: What is your favorite flag colors?
A: Me? I LOVE Ukraine's flag
