Music Reflects Love

Everyone loves music and any reference to it be music reflects love.  People have a love for music and often they use it to express love and feelings.  It’s no different when you create a card using music.  I love this card because it expresses so much more.

Pink Flowered Birthday

This beautiful pink flowered birthday card is delicate and decorated for someone special.  You can create a handful for all the special people you want to celebrate with this year.  I love to create a card stash at the beginning of each year, however, it means changing up colors and designs as well. After that, you just put all your creations together in a safe place to use throughout the year.  Lastly, always have fun.
