Wishing You … a Happy 90th Birthday!

IMGP9995

I made this card for my husband’s aunt who turns 90 tomorrow. We went to an Open House for her yesterday.

The base size of this card is 5 x 7 inches. I wanted a larger card for such a special occasion. I used Very Vanilla cardstock for the base, Rich Razzleberry for the matting and butterflies, and watercolor paper for the stamped sections. The border is punched with a Stampin’ Up! punch. I used SU!’s Thoughts and Prayers stamp set for the flowers/branch. I colored the stamp with Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive markers, stamped them on a piece of scratch paper, misted the watercolor paper and then stamped the image. I did the same thing with the sentiment. The little trim piece is a leftover scrap from the punched border. The sentiment is from a set that I just ordered from Verve called Wishing You.  The butterflies are punched with a Martha Stewart punch.  I added pearls to the butterflies and the flowers.  The image panel is mounted on Pop Dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
