Catherine's 90th Birthday

Today's card is for a lady who has reached the grand old age of 90! As Catherine's eyesight is quite poor I wanted to make something that was textured to allow her to feel what she might not be able to see...

The flower digi is a very old one from Birdie Brown - I'm not sure if it is available any more. I've printed the digi onto patterned papers and layered the flower. The numbers were created in publisher with a faux stitching effect to match the flower and printed onto the same patterned paper. For the background, I used a butterfly embossing folder that came free with a magazine.

I've entered this card into the challenges at:

Penny's Paper-crafty Challenge #263 - anything goes
Mod Squad Challenge - hearts or flowers
Southern Girls Challenge - anything goes
Time Out Challenges - 'Love is the flower you've got to let grow'
Ruby's Rainbow Challenge #122 - anything goes

Thanks for visiting
