90th Birthday

************

This is for my sister's MIL who lives round the corner from me. It is really hard to believe she will be 90 in a couple of weeks - anyone would think she is at least 10 years younger. I nearly said 20 years but that is too near to my age, rofl.

The patterned papers are from the papermania Rose Garden pad...again - the stripe I made myself


I added two spellbinders shapeabilities corner flourishes to the sentiment to tart it up a bit. Made a stick pin and used my new butterfly punch.
Eeeek, I even used some more of the gorgeous silk ribbon from Funkie Junkie Linda's store  for the bow.
The wire edged creased ribbon is actually a  lovely champagne colour also from Linda's store.

Hi Irene

What an absolutely gorgeous card - love that you've made the stripes yourself - looks like a bp - love the ribbons and the sentiment is just great too. The recipient of this card will be delighted I'm sure.

Thanks so much for sharing it with us over at Kaboodle Doodles and good luck.
