90th Birthday

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

What a special birthday and this lady is a marvel........she was a devoted fan of the local football team (Rushden and Diamonds) from their humble start to when they went into liquidation.  She was interviewed on TV one time and pulled no punches giving her opinion.
She still helps to serve dinners to the 'old folk' at the community centre...the majority of them much younger than she is, lol. She walks to the local club every evening for a drink...really only one....and then walks back home!!
She is sharp as a tack and bright as a button.....a real legend :)

Torn corrugated card painted with iridescent medium
TH die cut #90
Sentiment computer generated and die cut with plain ovel from Radiant Rectangles
Flowers and leaf branch - Marianne Creatables




Finished off with organza bow, pearl button and flatback pearls in the corners
