Violet Birthday Blessing

Tomorrow is my oldest daughter's birthday celebration. It will be the warmest day this week, above freezing! We're taking her out to her favorite place for lunch near her work, Sweet Tomatoes. Her birthday is actually Thursday when we're expecting another snow storm, too far for driving 100 miles in the snow to see her.

I know she won't see this card on my blog because with end-of-the-month accounting duties at her job, four children, basketball practice in the evenings, she has very little personal time. I chose these shades of lilac and purple for her card since her February birthstone is the amethyst.


I used CTMH cardstock and diamond embossing folder, Graphic 45 paper, and a stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs. I die cut a Spellbinder's label, but cut off the top portion.

Winter will soon be over! I'm so tired of seeing white, gray, and shades of brown outside. I can't wait for spring when we have wild violets growing in our yard!

Thank you for visiting. May God bless you and your family.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:
