A special birthday

My great-aunt is turning 97 and my Mom requested a special card for her. I pulled out my lace and lots of florals from GinaK Designs.  My good 'ol Spellbinders dies were dusted off for this one.

Addicted to CAS: SUMMER

Looks like everyone in the Northern Hemisphere is celebrating summer. Here it's not been nearly cold enough for winter!




Stamp set used: Unity Company "Spirit of Summertime" (KOM July 2013)

Summery Salute with CTS230

Here's a quick salute to summer with Case this Sketch & Sunday Stamps (links below).
I used two very old images I googled with a sentiment from Unity Stamps "Basically Said" set. All three panels are on three different levels. I turned the CTS sketch side-ways so that it fit the dimensions of my images.




Trust you are all well.
