FSS Dogwood Branch Birthday Card

I'm trying to get back into the card making mode. It's been three weeks since my shoulder surgery and I can now take my sling off for a short period of time as long as I don't lift my arm. Actually, the doctor didn't say I could do this but as long as I behave myself, I'm not doing any damage. It allows me to use my left hand to help hold the papers. It was very difficult trying to do it all with one hand.

I have several Birthday cards that I am late with so took today to make two of them. This first one is for my Daughter-in-law. I used the newest pre-colored images from Fred She Said, called Dogwood Branch, to create this card. I matched it up with the Chantilly designer papers from Close to my Heart.

Challenges submitted to with this card:
ABC Challenge - 3 or more Embellishments
Crafter's Cafe - For a Woman
Digi Stamps for Joy - Spring Has Sprung
Paper craft Star - Pastels
Sisterhood of Crafters - May Flowers
Stampotique - Anything Goes
