For a special lady on her 90th birthday

I was commissioned to make this card by a lady who is a retired Salvation Army officer, for her to send to someone she trained with for her 90th birthday - hence the picture of the flag with the date of when they were Ambassadors together. I used papers etc from the Crafter's Companion Downton Abbey kit, including one of those lovely domed metal and glass framed picture that matches the main one and the background paper is very glittery (if that's a word - lol!).

Sorry it's such a dark picture ... and the card has gone now,. so I can't take another.

This is for:

Paru  July: birthday
Fab n funky 360: use a patterned paper
Daisy chain 10: floral
Ike's world 93: anything goes + option: bunch of kindness
Paper sweeties July: red, white & blue
Crafty girlz July: anything goes + option: red, white & blue
Pile it on 132: primary colours or something beginning with S: special day
City crafter: something beginning with S: special day
