Of the August birthdays on my list, my mother's comes first on the calendar. I had been traveling and was somewhat short of time, and felt out of creative juices on such a short timeline. I really liked the card I made for my niece, so I decided to make another with a different sentiment, of course. The colors in this card are so soft and restful that I thought my mother would really like it as well. My daughter would probably like it too. . .she used periwinkle as a wedding color!
