My First 100th Birthday Card!

Good morning,

Hope you are all well today.  I don't know about where you are but up here in the Highlands of Scotland it's getting rather nippy in the mornings.  I suppose that's the flip side of having had some really clear sunny days recently.

This morning I'm sharing a commissioned card a friend from work asked me to make for her Gran in Law's 100th Birthday!  What a milestone!  The birthday girl now lives in a care home but lived in her own home right up until earlier this year, that's some achievement.  My friend found some ideas for what she'd like on Pinterest and the only really firm request was for butterflies and some purple or lilac shades.  This is what I came up with...

Apart from the card blank enverything else uses Crafter's Companion Centura Pearl card.  The door plate and large butterfly dies are by X-cut, Trimcraft number dies, Stampin' Up Embosslits small butterflies and Sue Wilson Creative Expressions Pierced Flags dies.  I've also used butterfly and dots embossing folders for a bit more texture.  White pearls to trim the butterflies.

That's all from me for now, take care.

Hugs, Shona xx
