My Next to the Last Winter Card for This Season

Before I share today's card project, I'd like to say a humble and sincere thank you to all those who have kept me in their thoughts and prayers.  Never underestimate the power of prayer!  I do have an entire list of serious problems with my back but I really like my new doctor (a spine specialist) and appreciate that he is taking a cautious approach by starting me on physical therapy.  After that, he'll evaluate my progress and see what the next step will be.  I'm hoping there will be no injections and no surgery.  Time will tell.  So... thank you, dear friends, and on to today's card project.

You may have figured out by now that I really do dislike Winter.  If I had my way, I would have it snow on Christmas Day ... one of those beautiful snows where the trees have snow clinging to every branch.  Kids of all ages could go sledding and build snowmen.  Then, I would want it to go right into Spring.  All the slush and messy melting would happen overnight and be gone by the time we got up the next day:)  I wouldn't even mind if it was in the 50's or 60's.  Then we would have a long, leisurely Summer (never above 90) followed by a long, leisurely Fall, in all it's glorious colors and textures.  Oh well, I can dream.  So, in honor of a season I wish was over, I'll share my next to the last winter card.
If you remember my tips for attaching vellum from one of my previous posts, you know how ugly it would look to attach this vellum with adhesive where it would show.  Instead, I chose a stitched rectangle frame to go over the outside edges of the vellum.  Problem solved! 
It's sad that some people have to celebrate a birthday in the Winter cold, but they still deserve a pretty card.  When you emboss vellum, it takes on an etched look --- very pretty.
