90 years young

This weekend we celebrated the 90th birthday of the lovely Mrs. Smith. She’s a wonderful lady at our church and it was so nice to be able to celebrate her special day. Everyone I talked to at the open house could just not believe she is 90. What a blessing to be so healthy and full of life at that age!

Of course I just had to make her a card. I had thought about the number 90 being the central theme but instead decided to tuck the age on the bottom right pennant on the patterned paper.

This card uses the October Afternoon Farmhouse collection. I love using their beautiful 8×8 size paper pads. The sweet little chipboard birdie is from the chipboard sheet that coordinates with this line.

The patterned paper on this card is so very pretty that I just didn’t want to cover it up with a sentiment layer. By stamping it on part of the embellishment cluster, it provides double duty as an embellishment and also the sentiment.

Quick Tip: The area you are stamping on doesn’t always have to be larger than your stamped image. Play around with stamping just a portion of the image onto a smaller surface such as this canvas tag.

Have a beautiful day!
