90th birthday

I was asked to make a 90th birthday card - it didn't have to be made yet, but thought I'd get it done as I didn't want to have to make it as soon as we get back from Eastbourne in the middle of June.

I've based the card on Laura's sketch 80 on All kinds of cards (kartenallerlei):

The background was cut from the back of a ready designed card (I still have the front with an oval aperture - two cards out of one). Flowers are Martha Steward and Create and Craft. I used the marvellous squares nestie d-lite dies for the middle pieces, having printed the greeting. The circle was cut on my cricut (so long neglected I hardly remembered how to use it!) having embossed the silver mirror card using an Embossalicious A4 folder with a piece of lovely sparkly netting across the middle underneath. With the addition of the numerals and some rhinestone gems, the card was finished.

This is an A5 card. I had to take the photo from the side otherwise I'd get me reflected in the silver mirror!
