A special birthday

One of the members of John's blind bowling club will be 100 on New Year's Day, so this card is to send to him. A surprise afternoon 'do' has been arranged for him a week or so later, when he will be given a big card from everyone (I've yet to make that one!).

It's safe to show this here because there's no way that the gentleman concerned would know anything about my blog.

For this card I used the sketch for Pals paper arts 74, using various sentiment papers, including a vellum on the right hand side.

The base card is a stardream midnight blue which sparkles. I continued te white birthday greeting paper on to the back of the card for a couple of inches.

This is also for:
