Heart 2 Heart Banner Challenge Surprise Card



SURPRISE! SURPRISE! SURPRISE!

I have a flaw, thankfully to this point it has not been fatal, but it is a flaw none the less.
I never am inspired by an event early. Never. Ever.
However, something has come from this flaw - a new birthday card concept - 
HAPPY SURPRISE BIRTHDAY CARD!

It doesn't matter if it is their birthday!

By the way, SURPRISE! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU and have a BANNER Day!!

Kathleen

Thanks, Kathleen. I think this is an original design! So I guess it is a "FUNN bridge" card = tee hee!
