90th Birthday Card

I have made a card for my Boyfriend's Grandma's 90th Birthday. Wow 90! can you believe! so I thought I'd try and make a special card for her.

I used a Sugar Nellie image of Faith and coloured her with Promarkers. I then layered the image up on some co-ordinating cardstock. The backing paper is a printable one which I think came from the Cardmaking and Papercraft website as I couldn't find anything subtle enough in my stash. I stamped the "90" motif using Versamark and embossed in gold. I used some Vintage Seam binding ribbon and added a little butterfly from my jewelry findings. I glitzed up some Mulberry roses using Diamond Stickles and trimmed pretty much everything else up with it too. I then created some swirl flourishes using pearls to finish it off. I'm really pleased with it and hope it will make her day!



I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

A Spoonfull of Sugar - "Let's Celebrate"
