Queen for the day birthday card

This birthday card is made with a black and white vintage image from my own ephemera collection, tinted on the computer. It was sent back to the States as a birthday card for my Grandmother. It was so heavy and the flower stuck up so high I had to send it in a box—not cheap. This is one reason my cards are getting flat-er. I actually mail them and if I put too much on them they're horribly expensive to send. This one is for my Grandmother, and since it's not every day one's grandmother turns 94, she is most definitely worth it.

The tag sentiment is my own created with Simple Snails ver. 4.0 font.

  5. It might be more expensive to ship, Shani, but this is the kind of card that speaks to my heart - vintage, soft colors and luscious embellishments. VERY beautiful!
