92nd Birthday Card

Good morning,

Although I don't really make any new year resolutions, one thing I have promised myself is that I will try to post at least one card a week on my blog, so here goes...

I made this card for my husbands Aunty who recently turned 92! I opted for a pre-coloured image and this gorgeous Die'sire die I bought last year but have not used until now..shameful that it's been stuck in a drawer and not seen the light of day until now (I'm rolling my eyes).

Pre-coloured Image: Lily of The Valley Art Pad (Set 27 - Beautiful Blooms)
Design Papers: First Edition (Pretty Posy)
Embellishments: White satin ribbon and Stickles (Stardust) from my craft stash
Tools: Die'Sire Create a Card Die (Ornate Lattice), Nestabilities, Sizzix Die (Scalloped Circle)
Sentiment: Docrafts Papermania (All Occasion Glittered Sentiments)

A lovely card Donna. Don't feel so bad, you're not the only one who has unused dies. I have quite a few dies that just HAD to be purchased because they would be so useful for making this and that, but they are still sitting waiting to be brought out. We can sit on the naughty step together.

This is a really pretty card. The die cut trellis sets the LOTV image off perfectly. The Doc's Aunt was 92 last month. Still does all her own cooking, shopping and gardening. Amazing. hugs Mrs A.

Donna, wow 92 - that's definitely a birthday worth celebrating! The card is gorgeous. Beautiful lattice framing lovely flowers and a fabulous satin bow adorned tot he side - so exhilarating. Yeah, I find things I haven't seen in years but then it purposely hid from me. LOL!!
