Have you ever been invited to celebrate a birthday and the invitation says something along these lines… Please make a donation to a specified charity instead of a gift?
I admire people who can do that. I think it’s a fantastic, selfless thing to do and I wish I was brave enough to do the same but the truth is I like my birthday and I like gifts.
By nature I am a shy person who usually shuns the limelight but some how this doesn’t apply when it is my birthday. I love the fuss that goes with the celebration, not that I generally go the route of a big party but I do like to get together with my friends.
Today’s card was made for a lady who did exactly that. She asked for no gifts, just donations to the local Children’s Home. So I had to make her an extra special card instead.
I also made a purple version.
For these cards I only used the flowers from the Art Nouveau Rose 4 pattern and repeated them randomly over the surface of the cardstock.
