A very special birthday: 102!!

Hello dear readers,

Apologies for keeping you wait, but I have been crafting a lot recently and only now found the time to get to note it all down & to share it with you.

But here we go, no more wait:
The first project I want to share with you is a very special card for my dear neighbor, who just recently celebrated his 102nd (!) birthday! I am really not kidding here!

Thankfully I can make cards on my own, because, hey, have you ever tried to find a card for a 102nd birthday in a shop?? IMPOSSIBLE!! =o)

Have a look at my creation:
I used this lovely handwritten stamp for the background & toned down the black ink a little with a piece of vellum. The lacy image is stamped with Versamark ink & colored with perfect pearls on red cardstock. The number 102 is heat embossed in white and raised with tons of glossy accents (also the sentiment by the way)!

Although it looks a little pink on the picture here, the cardstock is really more of a warm light red & together with the vellum a really fitting combination for a masculine card in my view.
My neighbor was very happy about the card and that´s all that matters to me =D

I thought this project is perfectly fitting to the latest ´count me in´ Lawnscaping challenge, and you can find their blog here: http://lawnscaping.blogspot.com

I hope you like my creation and will stop by again soon.
Until then!
