Birthday Card

Hi stampers!! I have a challenge card for Isabella's challenge. The challenge is a Black and White card with a twist, to color the main image, using one of Isabella images. If you don't have any of her images, she has this freebie that I used here. Some beautiful grapes!! I colored them with colored pencils and OMS. The DP is Websters pages.


I had a wonderful weekend, I got to visit with my girls and grand kids. My grand daughter graduated from high school. Wow! Where did the time go??

Well, I hope this weeks goes well with you all! Thanks for stopping by.

You are so lucky to have shared in the graduation of your granddaughter! Our kids are 29 and 34, and we have no grandkids in the plans yet...sigh...by the time they have babies, if they ever do, I won't be able to enjoy them!!! Love your card, Geri - you've colored those grapes beautifully!
