Happy 90th Birthday

Today I have a 90th birthday celebration to attend.  It's always a pleasure to celebrate with someone who reaches such a wonderful milestone. 

The birthday lady has a beautiful garden and loves her flowers.  Last time I saw her she had a lovely Emerald Green top on so I wanted to combine both and I came up with this

It may be difficult to see in the picture but the rose is cut from Dazzling Diamonds (white) glimmer paper and is inlaid into the piece that is embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.

Sadly these number dies have retired but they were just the right size for the corner of my card.  They too are cut from the glimmer paper.

Inside the card I have stamped the co-ordinating rose stamp and the birthday sentiment from the Rose Wonder set that matches the dies.   

As a gift, we bought her a plant, but to dress it up a little I added a handmade plant stick.  Not only did it brighten the plant but we were able to write a message on the back of it for her so she knew who it came from amongst other gifts.

Cardstock: Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron, Whisper White, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
Big Shot: Rose Garden Thinlits die, Little Numbers dies (retired), Softly Falling Embossing folder
Stamps: Rose Wonder
Ink: Emerald Envy
