We have two birthdays coming up - my brother-in-law (Feb 19) and my horse-surgeon sister (Feb 20). I turned to Pinterest for some inspiration. Here's the inspiration for my BIL's card:
I love the overlapping words of different strengths and in different directions and achieved a similar look by using black and grey with one of my favourite Papertrey sentiments.
For this one, this crochet blanket with its separated rainbow stripes is bright and cheery, but still very clean. I added another Papertrey sentiment and a Yellow Owl Workshop horse to personalize it for my sister.
