Sending You A Big Hug

Today is my birthday.  I had not planned to spend it being stuck in the house but given it is the safest place for me to be during this trying time, I made a card to send to one of my grandsons.

First, I stenciled the grid onto the card base using my blender brushes.  I really like the way it looks with the brighter color I used on the feathers.  It was a simple card to put together and with mail nicely with no extra postage required.  I always like that.

I've entered my card into the following challenges.  For all the challenge details, click the image(s) below.
