One Hundred Years Old

A card for a lovely lady who lives in the same Care Home as my Mother in law.  She is 100 this month and more alert and mobile than some 20 years younger.

To make the card I embossed some white card with an embossing folder for the background and shaped mat for the flower and added glitter into the debossed areas.  These have then both been matted onto some pink card.  The flower is from Honeydoo Crafts its heat embossed onto parchment using sparkling WOW embossing powder and I used the same technique for the banner and the sentiment.  I used a pink Promarker to colour the back of the parchment flower, flags and sentiment and put pearls at the edge of the banner and sentiment.  The banner and numbers are from Clarity Stamp but I'm not sure which stamp set I took the sentiment from now.

I hope you like this card as much as I do, your comments will be very welcome.
