Be Yourself card

Hi crafty friends, I am sorry I've been out of action on my blog for a week but I was away for a few days at a wedding (interstate) and then of course trying to catch up with everything, it takes a while and yet I was itching to start cardmaking again! I have my Auntie's 60th Birthday today so we're about to go out for lunch shortly, so I made her this card using a Doodle Pantry digi. I don't have my camera at the moment so I must apologise for the blurry photo, it was taken on my Iphone. Unfortunately I won't be able to take a better one as I'm giving it to her today.

FWAB used:
Elise flourish and flower, Jack black vine leaves
