A card for a very special lady!

Good morning!
I have a really feminine, girlie Birthday card for you today. This was a commission for a lady at church who turned 100 on Sunday...yes, 100! And let me tell you, she really does not look a day over 80! She still walks well, without a walking stick, barely has any wrinkles and doesn't even need glasses! One very incredible lady!!

Anyway, about the card...

I have used a bit of the gorgeous, but retired, Twitterpated DSP and teamed it with some of the lovely new ribbons, and the Stippled Blossoms stamp.

The sentiment was created in Word, using the Stampin' Up! RGB codes to get just the right colour (if you would like the codes, please contact me).

Stamp - Stippled Blossoms
Ink - Primrose Petals, Pretty In Pink, Pear Pizzazz, Pistachio Pudding, Baja Breeze, Island Indigo, Blushing Bride, Pink Pirouette
Ribbon - Blushing Bride Stitched Grossgrain, Pistachio Pudding Ruffled Stretch Ribbon
Other - Designer Builder Brads

If you would like to get some of the lovely products shown here, or in any of my other posts, please do contact me and I will be delighted to order them for you.

I think this card would have been perfect for my Grandma for her birthday too. It would have been her 95th birthday today and I'm sure she'd have loved a card like this. Sadly, she passed away 2 and half years ago, but she is still missed. 
Happy birthday Grandma xxx

  2. Love this card Lizy - beautiful as always! Your blog is a constant source of inspiration and pleasure. Joanne x

  3. Gorgeous Lizy, I'm sure Lizy loves her card.

    It would have been perfect for my Aunt Jean too. She would have been 97 on the 13th of this month. She just missed it by 3 weeks! Still we're comforted by the fact that she was alert and independent. Lived by herself, made her own meals and made pancakes(dropped scones if you don't live in Scotland!) every Saturday.
