90th Birthday!



I thought this young image and the bright and cheery colors would make the birthday gal feel young again! 90 years.... AMAZING!! And she is still in good health! :)
I put ALOT of work and detail into this card...took me about 3 hours from start to finish! But I think it turned out so beautifully!

Supplies: Cuttlebug with dot folder (not sure of exact name?), various eyelets and brads, JustRite stamps, memento ink, Whisper ink, ribbon from stash, Rubber Romance image colored with Copics, Cricut to cut out all shapes except the tag with 90 is from K&Co. I just added the 90 with the JustRite stamper.

OKAY....this is probably a good time to ask. Do you like when I list the supplies like I have been doing the last few posts or should I just stick to describing what I did on my card like I used to do???? Or would you prefer I do both sometimes???
Thanks...I like getting opinions from those that are doing the reading!!

Challenges:
Rubber Romance - Jan. 10th sketch
Crafty Catz - Birthday
Paper Makeup - Birthday
Charisma - Anything new
Simon Says - Shabby Chic .... although I don't really know what this means their blog said it shows wear and tear. So I sanded the background paper and inked up the edges of the sentiment tag. Hope that is correct!
ABC - L is for Layering
The Pink Elephant - Birthday
Crafty Creations - Textures
Practical Scrappers - embossing
