I volunteered to make a 100th Birthday card for a lady who was a long-time member of our church but who now lives out of the area. I knew I needed a large-format card so everyone at church could sign it. I had some ideas in mind, but they kept reminding me of a card I made a year and a half ago and still had in my stash of cards. So I pulled that one out and adapted it for this very special milestone birthday. Do you ever do that?
Here's the original card from this post dated September 15, 2014:
Here's my adaptation:
I added glittery gold Thickers numbers over a vellum banner, colored on the backside with my Spectrum Noirs to match the other pink on the card. I also added a loopy gold bow. (Yah, I know....the bow is not the only loopy thing around here! Ha.) What do you think? Should I have added more flowers? I didn't want to draw too much attention away from the focal image, so I left it as is.
Hope this gives you some ideas on remakes of your own cards. I could so relate to the kitty meme at the top....I can fix this...sorta. lol...
