I Thought of You Today for InKing Royalty February Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around BIRTHDAY. It’s always special to celebrate the birthday of someone you love, so handmade birthday cards are always fun to share. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I know, I know, it isn’t a traditional birthday card, but just because it is their birthday, doesn’t mean you aren’t thinking of them.  Consider it an understated version of a Happy Birthday.  Besides, this layout could be used for lots of different kinds of cards.

I used the Climbing Roses set from the Occasions catalog.  It is lovely with the soft gray granite and daffodil delight.Click on the button below for full step by step instructions.
