Happy Birthday

Good afternoon,  Are you all having a lovely relaxing Sunday.  Back from having a lovely lunch with friends who were down for the weekend. They have just left to travel back home, so I have some free time to share this card with you.

The card I have made today is a lovely colour in mint and white, it's a birthday card for an Aunt who's birthday it is next month.  I was stuck as to what colours and what style to make for her.  I came across a sketch challenge that would fit the job in hand.
