Birthday Wishes for You Stamp Set + Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper = 1 fantastic birthday card. If you love bright colors and fun party patterns, the Picture Perfect Party 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper is for you! It is paired with the Picture Perfect Birthday Stamp Set in the Occasions Catalog (pg. 5). I, however, decided to pair it with the Birthday Wishes for You Stamp Set on page 3 of the Occasions Catalog. I think this birthday card is fabulous and fun! Of course, the Lemon Lime Twist card stock is a great base color and really stands out against the black card stock.
