SD cards should be interchangeable between a model B and a model B+ as long as the card was created since the release of the Model B+, or has been inserted into a model B since the B+ was released and these commands entered to update the OS and any other packages supported by apt-get:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

(We say since the B+ was released, but more specifically an update on the card needs to have happened since whenever Raspbian and any other hardware specific software packages we're updated to support it)
