Happy birthday

Hope you had a great weekend!

Here's a card that I made for my grandma's birthday, which is later this month. I love this delicate patterned paper, from the My Mind's Eye line, Fine and Dandy. I'm so happy I cut into this sheet, but I may have to buy another to use on more projects!

happy birthday grandma

The little butterflies are from Butterfly Dreams, and the sentiment comes from Delightful Dahlia. The scalloped circles were cut using the Love Lives Here die.

Thanks for coming by!
Melissa
