Happy birthday to a wine connoisseur


It's time for a new Pearly Sparkles challenge which, as always, starts on the 1st of the month, over at the Pearly Sparkles Challenge Blog. Our theme this month is Celebrate, so I made an 80th birthday card for one of our family. He seemed quite pleased with it. I used My Craft Studio software and images and backing paper from My Craft Studio's From a Man's Point of View: the Golden Years

I do hope you'll join us over at the Pearly Sparkles Challenge Blog this month and share your makes with us.
