My Gran is 90!!!

Am a week or so late with this post but wanted my gran to get her card and gift before posting about it.
She lives in California and has just turned 90 this last week and looks fab for it! Here she is with my 3 aunts: Deirdre on the left (who no doubt will be the first to see this blog post!!!), my Gran, Caroline and Moira.

Here is the card that I made - its an 8x8" square card covered with Tea Dance kit papers from Craftwork Cards. I've usedsome of the die cut flowers from the kit and made more using the Tim Holtz tattered florals die and layered them to embellish the card. I've also used a tag from the kit with Vintage Photo distress ink.

I've added a doily behind the tag and used ZVA Creations self adhesive pearls as well as pearl beads on a string around the edges. I've added wide white lace too. 

Platinum stickles and liquid pearls are my favourite finishing touches at the moment and have been added to the edges and the flowers.

Some more of the papers have been used to embellish the inside and the envelope!
I'm so glad she liked this.

I'm entering this into the My Craft Creations Challenge - Special Occasions.
