A *Very* Special Birthday Card!!

Hello My Friends

Friday morning my boss sent me a text and told me it was the Archbishop's birthday and said "Might you have a card you could bring for the staff to sign that we could give to him?"   And I very blithely answered....Sure.  Then raced downstairs to my Craft Cave to make a card for him.

I mean, I have birthday cards in my stash....but for the Archbishop????

I needed something not too frou frou.  No butterflies or flowers or ribbons or bows.  No glitter no nonsense.  Our Archbishop is a wonderful man.  Very solid.  Very learned.  And a fantastic shepherd to his people.  But it was still intimidating to think of making a card for him.

So I borrowed an idea from a Pin I have and altered it a bit and this is what I came up with.  Awesomely Artistic and Gorgeous Grunge to the rescue.  Along with the You've Got This background splotch.  Wink of Stella on the dragonfly wings to give a hint of translucence.   A retired sentiment that is exactly what I need in these sorts of situations!! And voila!

Hope he was blessed by it!  Although I signed the card I didn't get to say it in person so a much belated.....Happy Birthday your Grace.

Hope everyone's weekend has been wonderful. God Bless,   ~Cynthia    <><
