90th Birthday Card

Happy Saturday and thanks for stopping by today. I also want to say a quick "Hello" to Lunagirl and welcome to my blog.
So today is the birthday party for a friend (my DIL's Grandmother) who is 90 years young.  This lady STILL lives by herself out in the country, and STILL drives a car!  You would never know that she is 90!!  So hats off to FERN!
Here is the card I made for her, I struggled with what to do, and took hours to just pick out what papers and colors I wanted to use.  She is not a frilly person, but LOVES flowers.  I finally decided on this luscious paper that the  Marvelous Ms.. Monica gave me on her visit to California.  The sentiment is an old one from All Night Media, stamped with navy ink and then die cut.  It looked a little to blaaah, so I used a Q-Tip and gold pigment ink and went around the edges, then embossed with gold EB powder.  The flowers were made with a blue and white marbled vellum and TH Tattered Flowers, with a dark blue rhinestone in the middles, and green leaves.  The 90 was Cricut  out of a gold cards stock, and using the same gold card stock to mat it all to the card base.
I really wish the gold in this paper would show better in a scan or photo, this paper is soo pretty!  Thanks Monica!
So while your reading this I am chowing down at the birthday party and going for swim afterwards, YEP! this is a scheduled post and I am already thinking CAKE!!!
