The Oldest Card In The World!

Okay, it's not really the oldest card in the world, but it is for a lady who is 104!  How often are you going to be able to make a card for someone of that age?!  She is actually our oldest resident.  She is full of life, reads loads of books and walks down to the dining room and back, twice a day!
The cardstock is Lucky Limeade, with my last, tiny bit of ribbon to match.  I've embossed the white background, embossed my oval frame and cut round it, adding a little Tim Holtz Broken China distress ink, otherwise it would have been Pool Party, but I still don't have the ink!  The little birds are from a now long retired set called Clearly For You, which was the first set I ever bought and return to again and again. 
Anyway, the recipient loved the card, which made my day.  I've no idea how many candles they managed to fit on her cake, though...
Back soon, I hope

  1. This is absolutely beautiful Jane, definitely my sort of card! Thanks for the comment on my 'cards in a box' and to answer you're question they didn't take too long to make, a 2 or 3 hours I reckon. Take care
