Good morning all!  March is coming in with a bang here in the Midwest.  February was such a lovely month and now the major storms have started.  In the meantime it is also the birthday of my friend Rita.  This is the card I have made for her.

Whenever I make a card for her I always put a lot of things she can feel.  Rita is blind so she can only see this with her hands.  I have used an embossing folder and added some Stickles to it.  I also used embossing powder on the sentiment and popped up the daffodils.  

For this card I used March Daffodil (G411) along with Happy Birthday (E367) from Great Impressions.  On the inside is the stamp I Wish You (G154).  Our March challenge will start on March 5.  I hope you will join in with us!

Thanks for visiting me and have a blessed day.
