Birthday card

My ex mother in law turned 82 the other day and I decided to make her a card. Spring flowers and butterflies might not be the most obvious theme for a fall birthday card – but hey, they are pretty, right! Being born late September I know everything about no strawberry cake and tulips for my birthday. :) I say no more. :)

I really like how this card turned out. Simple but the papers are absolutely wonderful. Everything is from Reprint, and this card with product information is up on the Reprint Blog today.

I used last week’s sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, really liked that one. Too late to play, though.

I’m going to Princeton in November. Sooo looking forward to go the the US again! Never traveled beyond the city lines of New York last time, this time it’s New Jersey. It will take me some time to cover the continent… Anyway, any scrappy shopping possibilities in the Princeton area??? Give me a shout out if you have any tips!

Thank you for stopping by!!!

Gorgeous! I think flowers and butterflies work for any time of year! And I know your ex mother-in-law is going to love this beauty! SO elegant and so full of amazing detail. I love the banner you made for the sentiment, and the butterfly swag, too. And the pearls add such a sweet touch!
