Catching Up

Here is a little catch-up post that I have been wanting to get done for a while. Back in March, my mother-in-law asked me to make a card for her neighbor's mother. A Happy 100th Birthday card... I was like OMgosh, she knew someone who was turning 100!

So I set forth to make a very special card for a very special lady... I did case this idea from someone but for the life of me can't remember who (my apologies in advance). I used Tim Holtz's rusted enamel technique for the card background, along with lots of brown distress inks... some feathers and some pearls. The photo is printed on vellum cardstock and aged with Vintage Photo ink. I inked the edges of the flower with some Distress Ink in browns as well.

I made a lovely box in matching cardstock with a clear acrylic lid to hold the card, which was a little bulky with the feathers and flowers and such.

The birthday girl?  LOVED IT!!

Now that I've caught up, I can enter this in the following challenges:


  1. WOW this is awesome! How fabulous that this 'young' lady was able to make this milestone and enjoy it too! Beautiful creation and I just love all the details you've added! Well done and congrats to the 'birthday girl'!
