SWEET SUNDAY SKETCH FOR GRANDMA

My grandma will be turning 91 years young on Monday! This is a picture of her last summer. She doesn't look 91, does she? This week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #53 was the perfect opportunity to design a birthday card especially for her!

The other Sweet Sunday Stampers have samples to show you today too! ...

Awesome card Nancy, love the how you did the BG and the circle. The butterflies are so pretty, just like your grandma! I know she will love your card!

OK, let's try this again! I do love your card! Great interpretation of the sketch!

Your grandma looks great! And 91? Must be that Iowa living (I'm guessing)

I do notice a family resemblance. You both have those great cheekbones, if you don't mind me sayin'!
