Melissa Frances Birthday Wishes – by Heidi Blankenship

No, it’s not Melissa Frances’ birthday, at least as far as I know — LOL!!!  But Heidi did use a nice assortment of Melissa Frances products to create her lovely vintage inspired birthday card today.  I know whoever gets this card will certainly be swooning! I adore the color scheme of soft gray and pink and a damask sheet of paper always captures my heart.  The roses are stunning and yes, that ruffly fru-fru layer of pink tulle sets the stage and dresses it up so nicely!  Totally smitten with this project — TOTALLY!!!  And — good news — Heidi used a number of dies to create her card today and we have hundreds of Spellbinders dies reduced in priceALL of our standard sized Spellbinders dies in stock are reduced — so check them out!!!

Now, let’s check out Heidi’s card:
