Happy Birthday!

Hi, Friends!

I hope you had a great weekend!  We got a lot of yard work done. My roses are blooming as are my yellow irises.  I planted red geraniums, hostas, and a few zinnias.  We also enjoyed some time out with shopping and a movie.

Anyways, I'm here today to share with you a card I made for my sister.  We usually go to her cottage on the lake to celebrate her birthday.  Her birthday isn't until July, but I thought I'd work ahead on a few bday cards.  I hope she'll like this card since it's a beach themed card.  I saw the challenge over at MFT and decided to enter. I did case Anna's card as seen below.  I was so inspired by her it!

Here is a view of the inside of my card...

Thanks so much for dropping by today!  Take care and have a great week!
