Summer Wild Thing

This card making hobby of mine leaves me with stacks of cards that just sit in a pile, waiting to be used.  I finally gathered them up and put them on display for sale at work.  A co-worker came across a card I made back in 2013, it's the male version of this card (Bob can be found here on my blog). 

She laughed at the card and said her girlfriend's birthday was on Friday and she wished it was a female image instead ....

... it was quite a few years back (6 years in fact) when I purchased this image Betty, along with her partner Bob from Fresh Brewed Designs (sadly, they are no longer open).  I combed through my images and when I found her I created this card.

I am so happy with how it turned out, I even took a chance at creating clouds, a big feat for me!  I'm in love with the papers and in love with this card, I had a lot of fun creating it.
