90th Birthday

It's my Nan's 90th birthday next month...and this is the card I've made for my Mum to give to her. There's a bit of a PB Hedgie theme going with her cards...as the paper bag card I'm giving her is covered in them too! I followed the sketch from Stampin' for the Weekend...although I did have to rotate it to leave room at the bottom for the wording. The image is 'Aftermath' by Penny Black, the papers are My Mind's Eye ('29th Street Market', the sentiment stamp is by Hero Arts (from the 'Cupcakes' set), and the letters and numbers were cut using the Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet. I'm also entering this card for the Creative Inspirations 'Family' challenge, and, rather confusingly, the other Creative Inspirations Challenge, where the theme is 'Numbers'.
