Birthday card

Hello lovely peeps,

It is summer holidays now and what a relief that is. Here is a card made with duct tape, yes duct tape that got stuck on my scissors and refused to get it's stickiness off them. Washi tape seemed like a breeze to put on and along came music signs. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and here is my card all ready and dressed up.

My mum was visiting from New Delhi and it was lovely to have her as she is a light and airy person (airy because she is pleasant company, lol). We went to the Botanic Gardens and down below are a few shots of the orchid garden.

Can you spot the chameleon in this picture? Now I have seen many such spineless creatures in my childhood as we lived in the midst of greenery in army cantonments yet the blues and greens in picture were the best colours I have ever seen. If my camera was better, it would have been even more impressive. 
Wish you a happy and healthy Sunday,

Great card - so fun that you made it with duct and washi tape. Very vivid like your pretty flowers. How sweet to refer to your mother as airy - those are the best kind of people. Hold on to her tight my friend. Hugz
