Card: Saint Nicholas

On Friday I received my first request to create a unique card. My customer asked me to create a special birthday card for his grandmother's 91st birthday. At once I was excited and honored to be entrusted with this. He wanted me to incorporate his grandmother's Italian and Catholic culture. I carefully researched her hometown in Italy and found that the patron saint was Saint Nicholas. The photo on the cover of the card is from the catholic church in that town.
