Freshly Made #166 and Inkspirational #71

I'm sure glad I checked my challenge list because I was working on a special card and then saw the deadline is tomorrow noon.  I quickly finished it up and here it is.


One of our church members, and the mother of a friend of mine, will be celebrating her 100th birthday at the end of December.  I just had to make her this card using the sketch from Freshly Made.  The numbers were cut with my Cricut, 3 layers of black and one of gold that I offset from the black.  I used the same gold for the lace edge cut with a die from My Craft Spot.  The background is embossed with Chain Link and the patterned paper is sparkly gold dots - from a SSS stamp kit.  I'm also entering this into the Inkspirational challenge - Anything goes with gold.  If you're not counting white, I did use the black.  I love black and gold.  Classy and elegant for an elegant lady.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I would say someone celebrating that birthday should see "100" on the card - and it is so elegant with the black and gold! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  5. Beautiful card, and wow--to have reached the age of 100--of course she deserves it announced in gold on her card.
