A Special Birthday Needs to Be Celebrated
A special birthday is today for a very special lady. And that lady is 90 Years young today. Can you just imagine the changes in the world that she has witnessed over the past 90 years? The speed a which the world changes just seems to get faster. Technology has made that possible but are we missing things because of way the time passes so quickly? Sometimes I think we are!
That special lady is my Mom whom I love dearly and we as a family as so lucky to have her here. We celebrated with a dinner and the family has grown over the years, so I was very hard pressed to get 13 people in my house for dinner. But we made it.
One of the best parts is that my Mom is still full of life and very with it. Albeit, a little more grey, a little tinier and a few more wrinkles but in our hearts she has not changed.
Stamps: You’re Wonderful, Skinny Mini Alphabet.
Ink/Markers: Tuxedo Black Memento, Calypso Coral Blendabilities, Night of Navy Blendabilities, Daffodil Delight Blendabilities, Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities, Old Olive Blendabilities.
Paper: Whisper White, Soft Sky, Gold Soiree DSP.
Accessories: Big Shot, Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder, Gold Sequin Trim, Gold Baker’s Twine, Pearl Jewels.
For this special birthday card, I decided to create my own background. Various flower stamps from the You’re Wonderful stamp set were randomly stamped around the outside of the card in Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The flowers were coloured and shaded using various Blendabilities.
The gold sequins were removed from the tread and placed randomly throughout and then a pearl jewel place on to of each one.
This is a special birthday card for my Mom and I so enjoyed creating it and giving it to her. She is very much loved.
