90th Birthday Card

I was asked recently to make a card for a 90th birthday for a friend. The birthday 'girl' is from around here, but has lived in the US for many years, so I saw a perfect chance to use some of that 'London' themed paper from Dovecraft!


I edged the paper, blue layer and doily with distress ink in Stormy Sky. I used dies from Spellbinders and Cottage Cutz. The flowers were made using punched shapes from Leone M and Martha Stewart and the gold vining and leaves are Spellbinders die cuts. I had to keep the whole thing fairly flat because of postage, so couldn't use any more elaborate flowers. There's an insert that wishes her a happy 90th birthday, but I'd prefer not to show it here.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Bloggers Challenge where they want red, white and blue,
Wags n Whiskers where anything goes,
DRS where they want paper punches,
Milk Coffee where they want loads of flowers,
Creative Belli where they want flowers
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge where they want circles,
Whimsy Stamps where anything goes,
Everybody Art where they want flowers,
LEJ where they want die cuts/punches,
