Surprise Card

Surprise Card

I’m sending this birthday card as a surprise to my brother-in-law’s aunt in Belgium. I’ve never met her, but I heard she enjoys getting cards in the mail, and I’m sure she will appreciate a card all the way from “Amerika”.

The sketch is today’s challenge on SCS (SC229), and the patterned paper I used is from the Bella Birds Designer Series Paper package. Better stock up on the DSPs and textured card stock you like this month, while they’re on sale!

Thanks for stopping by!

    It’s very nice! and yes… my mother-in-law (in Belgium) keeps all the cards that I send her 🙂 They do like them! Who doesn’t like a handmade card? 🙂 Greetings.
