Blossom Birds

Today I am sharing a card I made for my mom to give to my Grandmother for her 92nd Birthday.

Grandma made beautiful handmade quilts, some of which included embroidered panels with animals, birds and flowers.  This stamp reminds me of some of the birds and flowers she used so I knew it would be perfect for her card. 

I hope my Grandmother likes her card as much as I enjoyed the memories this stamp brought back for me as I made it.
