Quick and Easy Birthday Card You Can Make Today!

Hey crafting friends! In honor of Dolly Parton’s birthday, I’m sharing a quick and easy birthday card you can make today! Dolly was born on  this day in 1946 and she was one of the first singers to blend country and pop music. Don’t know if Dolly is a crafter but hey, wanted to give her a shout out when sharing my quick and easy birthday card!
