100 Years Young ...

Morning Folks, what a lovely bright sunny day here, still a bit cold though! Just getting over that horrible virus bug that has been doing the rounds....so fed up of it lingering and not shifting!! Anyhoos, managed to finish off a commissioned card for a friend of my hubby's Aunt, who will be turning 100 years young next week, fantastic ....Wow I so wish I could reach that age. Here is what I created for her ...


Close Ups 


I made this using the Glitter Girls 'bookatrix' board, backing card and peel offs. The Gold base card, I embossed using the Emobossalicious leaf folder. For the flowers, I made them using Spellbinders Blooms 3 and die cut them out of the Glasgow Herald newspaper as the Lady still reads hers everyday!! I coloured the flowers using Cosmic Shimmer sprays. The leaves were die cut out of Glitter Girl gold card using Brittania Rose Leaf die. I added the glitter numbers after colouring pink with Cerise Promarker, finishing off with adding pink lace ribbon around the edge of the card, satin pink and gold ribbon, Brittania 'Congratulations' sentiment, gems, brads, pearls and butterfly die from my stash .... I made the stand out of two layers of Glitter Girl gold mirror card using Joycraft die and made up the Glitter Girl Box adding peel offs and gems ...
