100th Birthday! WOW!

Hey, it's not often that you hear of someone turning One Hundred years old, is it?

I don't know this lovely lady personally, but I have been asked to make a card for her upcoming birthday. I have made cards before for the customer who is giving the card and she seems to like the dry-embossed cards quite a lot, so I went with that.

Next, I picked out my favourite colour - Pool Party and added in some silver shimmer.

I used the Window Frames Framelits to cut these shapes - after stamping with Memorable Moments stamps - just made for all those once-in-a-lifetime occasions! It has not only the happy, not only birthday, but anniversary, as well as st, nd, rd, th and numbers 0 to 9, so you can make cards for ANY numerical event you can think of. That's rather handy isn't it?

I was lucky enough to receive this set as one of the many gifts from last year's Stampin' Up Convention in Canberra. In May this year, we are heading off to sunny Brisbane for 4 days of

 Stampin' Up! fun and freebies!

That's just what I call the annual Stampin' Up! Convention anyway.

I shadow stamped the label with a floral stamp from last year's sale-a-bration, Fresh Vintage, and inside it has been stamped twice with the same flower in Pool Party, and a lovely greeting from Blooming with Kindness, "Warmest Wishes on your Birthday", was stamped also. Lastly, some itty bitty blossoms punched from Pool Party card were scattered about and finished off with basic jewel rhinestones for some extra glitter.

I hope the customer who commissioned this card and her wonderful friend are both happy with my effort.

 Now, I am not the cleverest at computer things but some of my colleagues have been showing off some of their wonderful creations - scrapbook pages, birthday invitations and so on, and I didn't want to be left behind!! (smile) I hate being left out when there's some fun to be had!
Hope you are having fun with your creating too
Cheers, Rachel
