85th birthday card

This is another card commissioned by a retired Salvation Army Officer similar to a couple I've shown before. I was asked to make a card for a SA colleague for her 85th birthday.  I used the picture of an open bible as before, this time digitally adding the new hat worn by ladies, adding the old style bonnet with the picture of the flag. I was asked to add a black car as the recipient used to drive one. The background is from the lovely Downton Abbey pack from Crafter's Companion bought some time ago, with the little domed brass frame from The Works.

This is for:
