Varied Vases Birthday Card

Hello Paper Crafters!! I have another card featuring the Varied Vases Bundle. This bundle is so versatile! The combinations are endless…almost. I made this card at stamp club and I thought it was the perfect birthday (May 19) card for my sister-in-law, Sandy. This color combination (Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist) and the white embossed flowers make me think of spring. To celebrate Sandy’s birthday we had lunch in New Braunfels at Krause’s Café, a German restaurant, with their 3 kids. If you read my post from May 2 you will remember that I made a birthday (May 1) card for my brother, Dale. I have one more card to make for them this month because their anniversary is May 27.
