It is my ex-boss' birthday and I wanted to at least mail her a card since I'm still trying to finish her Christmas present Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
I just drew the swirls, added a few buttons. The "patch" has gold ink around the edges. and I sewed the patch on. Umm think that's it...So here's the card

And I did a little matching ditty for the envelope:

Do you think she'll like it?

I love the buttons!  Sewing on paper is totally cool and something I want to try real soon--now that you've inspired me!
