My BFF's mother is celebrating a very special birthday today,
she is turning 90 years!
I was asked if I would make her a card,
so after a bit of thinking and checking what colours to use,
this is it finished.
I started with a square white card base,
and cut a square mat from patterned paper to fit.
To make it just a little different, I used a border punch on the top left and bottom right sides,
then tucked some co-ordinating paper behind both these borders.
Next I cut the window and bricks from some foiled patterned paper
using a Kaisercraft die.
I really liked the randomness of colour this created,
a perfect contrast for the background.
I don't use flowers very often on my cards,
however, the flowers I did have, all co-ordinated with each other perfectly along with some ribbon that I had recently purchased.
A couple of die cut butterflies and the number 90th were all that was needed
to finish it off.
I made a box from white card and tied the same ribbon around it,
along with a little tag.
From what I hear, this lovely lady had a very happy 90th birthday,
celebrating with a family luncheon.
