Thinking of you

My aunt just had back surgery to remove a tumor that was wrapped around her spinal cord. Fortunately, it was benign and her recovery has been incredible! Her birthday is coming and I decided to make her something special. So I made her card for Regina's challenge over on the BBTB. She wanted us to use the tall ball grass from the Doodlecharms cart. With that said, here is my card!

One little thing....I made the fabric flower on this card myself! Thanks DSIL for the idea! I had been dying to make my own flower using the fabric and this was the perfect project to use it on.


Materials used-

Cardstock and PP: DCWV
Ribbon: Offray
Button: Walmart
Stickles and embroidery floss
