About a year and a half ago I met a lovely lady who dialled a wrong number and got me instead.
Tomorrow she will be 95 years old - perhaps I should say 'young' because she is as bright as a button and a joy to visit.
When I first visited her she was telling me about her family and I recognised her daughter's name - we went to the same school - how about that for coincidence.
I haven't seen her since Christmas so I will have the pleasure of calling round tomorrow with this card and some flowers.
I spritzed the rose with ruby red Cosmic Shimmer to match the rose in the image
I started this before I went on holiday and have forgotten where I got this lovely image but I can tell you it is printed on photo paper and, as you see, well distressed.
Papers - from the Sprout Collection from the Shabby Shoppe.
Large rose - Wild Orchid
Vintage seam binding ribbon - My Wedding Party, EBay shop
MS border punch
Pearls and small roses from my stash
I made a box embellished with more pretty pink seam binding and small pink roses
I have made this for the following challenges

By the Cute and Girly - Celebrations
CRAFT challenge #51 - Birthday/celebrations
