Birthday Wishes


I made this card for my Mom's birthday, she will be 84 in a few days. She has been having a tough time these days, she just had a knee replacement and now she broke her collar bone. We are keeping our fingers crossed that she will make a half way decent recovery.
This card also fits the WIT1 challenge. Tracy is one of my DT buddies and is running a fun challenge with prizes on her blog, pop on over if you get a chance!

To make this card I use The Paper Company pink parchment paper and PTI vintage cream. the layers were cut using the SU top note die and Spellbinders Nesties. The flowers are from Martha Stewart, and the ribbon is Hanna Pink Silk.
Thanks for taking a peek!
