Hello bloggers I hope you are well  and not too affected by the weather at the moment. I am sharing a card  I was asked to make for a lady who has made it to the grand old age of 100.  Gosh that is some milestone. 
 I used an 8x8 card and started by using a k&co paper for the background. I ran it through the Calibur using a flourish folder to emboss it. I used radiant rectangles spellbinder die using the large die part and then the smaller die for the sentiment. I did use the paper from a cereal packet to make it easier to get the dies out and also ran it through twice.  The flower was made from Tim Holtz tattered flower die, I shaped them and used distress ink on outer part. The sentiments were done on the computer. I added some ribbon and a hatpin to finish. I hope you like it. Take care and thank you so much for looking.
