Birthday Card





My grandmother celebrated her 96th birthday yesterday. She is still going strong and looks great. Hope I feel as good as her at that age.
 This was the card I made for her.
I have always used black ink to stamp with but this time I used brown.  I think I love the way the brown looks with the softer colors. Definitely going to be stamping in brown more often.
