Leopard Happy Birthday Card

This afternoon was a little "wild" in my craft room. Well... not really, but I did recycle a leopard kraft shopping sack for this Leopard Happy Birthday Card. The store my hubby bought my Valentine's Day present at placed my gift in this leopard sack. My hubby wrapped my present before he gave it to me but he saved the sack. He said he knew I would want it, and he was right. It was perfect for this weeks challenge at The Paper Players to use a recycled or re-purposed item. I have to say this card was a lot of fun to make. Thanks for stopping by!
