Happy Birthday, Alicia!

Well, today is my cousin Alicia's birthday. She is about 7 months younger than I am. She's been through a lot these past few months. Her mom, my aunt, had a double brain aneurism in mid-December and things were really touch and go for a while. She recently was able to return home, well to Alicia's home, and is now back in the hospital after having suffered what they think is a seizure. It's just taking her brain longer to recover because of the brain damage she suffered in December. This is the card on its way to my cousin. I's late. My cards are always late. But, I called her this morning to wish her a happy birthday so it's all good!
The idea for this card came from another A Muse Designer/Instructor's blog but I can't remember whose it was and don't know if this is an exact case or not. I just thought Alicia would think it was cute. And she needs a lift...the poor girl has to be both physically and mentally exhausted! Her kids are the same age as mine, within a few months, and between taking care of her mom and taking care of her own family, she's gotta be beat.

This is great! I love the soft blue and the green and pink together! The trees at the bottom was a really cool idea too!
