Birthday Card

Hi all

Hope you are having a great weekend so far cos I am.  I had a lovely relaxing day yesterday as I went out shopping with my Mum which we haven't done for ages, or at least since Brian became ill and today I have had a whole day crafting and going to my Scrapbooking club which was wonderful.

This is a birthday card that I have had to make which I hope you like.  All the background papers are the leftovers from my previous card which are Basic Grey (except I can't remember what collection).  The gorgous image is from Whiff of Joy and one of the City Girls Collection.  The flowers as usual are from Wild Orchids and all other items are from my stash.

I am entering this into the following challenges.

Basic Grey - Flowers
Sketch Saturday - Sketch 139
