My next sister-in-law's birthday is in late June; she is one of my husband's brother's wives. She loves to putter in her yard, so I thought a card with gardening, flowers, and butterflies in mind would be just right for her. I recently got a new "make it yourself" card kit designed by my sister, Heidi Gonzales (mylilscrapcorner.blogspot.com) that I just LOVE because of its rich and vibrant colors. Its colors remind me of a garden full of wonderfully bright flowers! After finishing this card, I designed a verse inside to fit the theme of the card. I hope Thelma enjoys her card.
