I made this card for a fellow GSG girl, Nancy Morgan. It's so funny, I have NEVER known anyone with my birthday - nor has anyone I have known known anyone with my birthday. Weird, huh. Then, after I got invited into the GSG group (#2) Nancy shoots me this e-mail saying that we share a birthday. Too cool, huh? Nancy is SO talented, and I love her blog, Paper Smiles. She sent me a card for our birthday too, and I'll post it tomorrow. It's ADORABLE so stay tuned for that!
As for my card for her, I was inspired by this card I posted by Brooke Stockman the other day that she made for our WOW swap. I hadn't ever done the grid technique and her card made me want to try it. It was really easy and fun to do - you should try it out if you haven't!! HERE is a tutorial for it from SCS that the lovely Beate created.
