April (Happy Birthday!)

Hi there friends!

I saw the photo inspiration as seen above for The Shabby Tea Room and couldn't resist playing this week.  All you needed to do was to get inspiration from the photo and use flowers.  I made this card for a co-worker who has a birthday next month.  And last weekend I made a visit to an Archiver's store , so I'm in the "shabby" mood for this card.  So many goodies all in one store!  I bought the lovely Crate Paper, lace, frame, and pleated paper.   One of my new favs now is the Craft Paper line...luvn' it!  Thanks for looking at my interpretation of's appreciated!  Have a great day and take care!
