A Sea Breeze Birthday

Kia Ora Koutou

 

Welcome back and I am finally able to share a card that I made for my son’s 3oth birthday last year using the new Courtyard Elegance die that has just been launched.  My son loves the sea and the Sea Breeze collection was just perfect for him.  And the new gold luxe card from Heartfelt Creations paired perfectly with the papers.  He was very happy with his card.
