89 years Young

Hello there

Tomorrow my dear Aunt celebrates her 89th Birthday... I adore that lady
When it came to making her birthday card  I wanted to do something I know she would enjoy, she loves animals but prefers photos of real animals rather than the die cut sort. So I scanned the internet and found a lovely photo  Here  which I printed and used on her card


I cut a frame for the photo and used Copics on leaf branches that I cut on my Cameo then added some little clear gems...


I also coloured the die cut sentiment with a copic marker and added a black strip of card behind the frame to make it pop a little


I hope she likes it...

I've been working long hours on projects for the group at club tonight and I'll share those with you tomorrow. 

Have a wonderful day

Amazing photo..love your card for your aunt!
I pull the triggle and bought my tickets, flying from London, it is 200 more than I last saw but it is hard to get everyone ticket at the right price as Clare will be flying from London to LA, that is the cheapest and best option for her, the one I last look at Amsterdam is cheap for me and Dolce but bad flight for Clare, it has a 21 hours lay over. Anyway, meeting you in real life has come a step closer that's for sure!
