Happy Birthday, Mom!

Hello everyone! Sorry I've been missing in action. So many things have been happening (on a personal level), but I am trying to stay positive with prayer. I made this card for the mother of my wonderful husband on her birthday. It's got a surprise inside. I tried to use her favorite colors (pink and blue) and for the theme I chose vintage, which she seems to really like. Enjoy!
