My husband has another aunt who has lived a long and lovely life, and she will shortly be celebrating her birthday. Her children, my husband's cousins, have decided to "shower" her with cards to mark her 93rd birthday and have asked all of the family to send birthday cards to create the "shower." With all of her relatives, I think it might be more like a monsoon as my husband comes from a large family with large families!
I made this card last spring knowing I would find just the right person to send it to because I really wanted to try out the Stampin' Up Dress Up framelits. As Margaret always looks like she just "stepped out of a band box," I thought this dress was probably one we could easily have seen her wear on a warm summer Kansas evening. I hope she enjoys her little "dressed up" card and has a wonderful birthday.
