100 years old birthday card


Here's the second 100th birthday card that I was asked to make.  I did mean to upload it earlier but its been a busy week.  My youngest son is going to high school next year and so we are having to go to the school open evenings to pick which schools we want to apply to - another 2 or 3 to visit next week and I'm exhausted already!

I don't know about you, but I always dread being asked to make 2 cards for the same occasion because I don't want them to look alike.  I hope I did a good enough job with this one.  I used one of my favourite stamps which I've inked up with Memento in London Fog as it wasa more delicate colour than black.  A little hint of colour has been added with pro markers and the ribbon roses are from Papermania - as are the papers.  I've added a bit of delicate sparkle with Sakura crystal gel pen, which you can only just pick out in the below picture.



I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

I love pro markers - include a number
Crafty Sentiments - Happy birthday
Kaboodle Doodles - lots of layers

Thanks for looking today,

Amanda
