Forever Young

Hi ladies
Just a quickie as it's late and I have been editing cards all night and now I am seeing DOUBLE.

Anyway, here's a little card I knocked up in the week using a Forever Friends stamp for a very special lady, who is celebrating her 85th birthday this week. A colleague, Linda, at work asked me to make it; only specifications were to have her name, age and flowers on the front. Well... I figured it had to be special, as it was such a significant birthday (well as far as I am concerned it's a specific age), so here is what I created for her.

I had to make a box envelope for her too as these flowers are pretty BIG and stand some way off the front of the card. I also decorated the inside of the card, but neglected to photograph it before I took it into work to give it to Linda.

I cut out the letters and the numbers by hand, after printing them off onto paper and tracing them. I added some brown DP with pink glittered leaves and then cut out my stamped image using my circle cutter. I then added the flowers, the ribbon etc and then finally the numbers and letters over the top with foam pads.

Linda really liked it and apparently, so did Nancy.
Happy Birthday special lady. Congratulations!

Thanks for stopping by. Hugs xxx

Thank you honey. I'm glad you like it. Apparently, Nancy got all teary eyed when she opened the box and saw it. Bless her.

Looking forward to the 23rd hon, can't wait to see you.
