Happy Birthday, Catherine!

This is a card that I made for my friend, Catherine. Her birthday was on Wednesday, but I couldn't meet up with her until today so I waited to post it until now.

My friend, Val, gave me some die cuts a while back that she cut from an old children's boardbook.   The colours are unique to each one from the designs on the story book page.  A neat way to use old books that might have been damages.  I think I still have a few books that were chewed by my little teethers a while back, so I might have to try this.   The glossy page that Val used made an especially pretty embellishment, though.  Thanks again for sharing these with me, Val!  :)

Thanks for stoppin' by!  :)
