A win and flowers

Hello Blogers.
What a weekend. I went down to Dayton OH on Saturday to surprise my son at his Drum line Nationals show. I found out Friday that West Bloomfield made the finales and thought I have to go and watch. There were so many great shows and the schools were from all over the USA.  Our school finished in 10th place! The kids were so proud, this was our first year in World Class.
Here is a photo that a parent took  of the kids with their director. The group should be so proud...they worked very hard.
Today I have a card for you that I really like the way it turned out.  One of my best customers at work...she is always orders cards from me, asked if I would make a birthday card for her mother who is a Beast cancer survivor. This is what I came up with.
 I used my favorite image from Flourishes and the sketch is from the Sweetest Thing. Thanks for stopping by and let me know what you think.

Oh my goodness I love your eye catching pinks you used and colored your flowers in! To me, it just says "Welcome back Spring!" :) I love the beautiful vintage flower in the corner of your card, too :)
