My friend Kathleen (Lammie) asked me if I wouldn't mind making a birthday card for her dear mother. Of course I said YES! Dorothea likes flowers so I chose to use my lily of the valley stamp which is my favorite flower so this card will be like a bouquet of my favorites to her. When I was getting the idea for this I wanted to make it very feminine and use a lot of white...and that got me thinking of the lovely cards that Linda (Holstein) makes. So I went to her gallery for inspiration....and boy did I find it there! Here's to Dorothea on her special day!

Polly, your large white die cut reminds me of a beautiful hankie. So beautiful in pink and white!
