A Country Happy Birthday – by Heidi Blankenship

I just adore the fresh and simple country feel to Heidi’s birthday card today. She used Distress Inks to create her beautiful whitewashed board background as well as to watercolor her floral. The lace band adds to the country charm and the sentiment makes it all POP! Love it! Take a look:
