 In one of the Facebook groups I am part of, I saw a post about a women setting up a card drive for her grandmother who turned 100 this month.  The goal had been 500 cards and that goal had been crushed (surpassing it by at least 1,100 cards!) with cards from all 50 states EXCEPT Rhode Island.  When I saw that, I knew I had to step up and fix that problem.  So, I got all the details and made this card to celebrate the birthday girl's special day.

I used the gorgeous flowers from Altenew's "Beautiful Day"--I just LOVE these flowers!  I used the different layering images along with the outline image; the layering is just fantastic!  I used a Hero Arts' Ink Cubes bundle, but it must have been retired since I can't find it on the web site.  I think it is the Poppy set.  
I stamped the outline image in a pale gray ink on the envelops to tie it in with the card.
Inside, I added a birthday sentiment, but I also added a Scripture verse on the top panel and stamped the outline image in the pale gray ink on both panels.

Stamps: Altenew "Beautiful Day" and "Crystal Frames" outside sentiment; Verve "Proverbs 31:28" plain jane; PaperTrey Ink "Inside Greetings: Enduring Birthday"
Dies: Spellbinders "Floral Ovals"; PaperTrey Ink "Filigree Border" and numbers border die

Making juice is relatively easier than making smoothies unless something goes horribly wrong. But the key in the juicing process is the flavor balance. This helps you to juice out the delightfully fresh juices out of your
PortOBlend Review with much ease and convenience as compared to the traditional blenders.
