Happy Birthday Yvette

It was my lovely sister's birthday on the weekend and the whole family gathered at her place to celebrate. I was feeling a wee bit under the weather (kidney infection, resistant to first dose of antibiotics, so I was drugged out on pain meds and much stronger second antibiotic) but since I wasn't contagious I went along rather than sit in misery by myself at home. And I couldn't go along without a handmade card, made especially for her. In my brain-addled state, I decided the best option was to CASE myself (why does that always sound a bit rude??). So I took THIS card and made it this:


I just used the reverse side of the paper and it became a completely different card! I also added some Sahara Sand shadows to the stamped Poppy Parade flowers to make them 'pop' a little bit more, and the greeting is from another Sale-a-Bration set, Elementary Elegance. My sister has always been a fan of the colour red, so this version was much more 'her' than my original. We had a lovely birthday lunch!
...and the kidney infection is now on the mend, so it's all good :o)
