Birthday Card Using Conie Fong Lavender Blue with CTMH Craft On Paper

Hello friends!  I can't believe it is the middle of June already. Where does the time go?  We spent a week away from home and attended one of my granddaughters wedding; which was gorgeous.  We also visited two other granddaughters; plus 2 great grandsons; and my two sisters and brother in laws, plus one brother.  It was a very busy and hectic trip; so I am exhausted since coming home.  It's always nice to see family.  Traveling is very tiring.  

I had this card almost finished before I left; but ran out of time and couldn't finish it.  I love this Conie Fong "Lavender Blue" image.  I didn't realize that I had not created this one yet.  It is my first time to create clouds behind an image.  I used a cloud die from CTMH to do it; and it seemed to work pretty good.
