100th Birthday Card


I was asked to make this card for a patient who is 100 on Wednesday (I work in a Drs Surgery).

At first I was a bit stumped, not sure what sort of design to use but then I thought you can't really go wrong with flowers (hopefully). I chose sketch #4 from Card Positioning Systems (it's readers choice this week you can choose from any previous sketches, there are 99 to choose from!). I used images from "The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady" which were free with my Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine a while ago, the gorgeous backing paper is by Laura Ashley & I finished the card off with a ribbon & a greeting printed on to cream card.
