BIG Birthday!

Hello Again!

This card will be entered into the following Challenges; Power Poppy, Time To....B Happy, Simon Says Wednesday, Photo Inspiration, Scrapy Land, Anything Goes and Double D, Simply Gingham.

I loved the colors of Jen's Mood Board from Simon Says, so soft and soothing!



Nothing says Happy like a BIG Birthday!  This card is for one of my Mom's dearest friends, Val.....she turns 90 at the end of the month!  Now that's BIG!!!

 
I used the Power Poppy stamp set, Short Stacks....one of my most favorites!  Images colored with Copic Markers.  Wink Of Stella Clear Pen added to the flowers, hearts and ribbon to add a bit of shimmer.  The background layers capture all of the colors from the Mood Board.  Each layer rounded with a Corner Punch. 

 
Spellbinders Hearts die with Swiss Dots Embossing Folder for texture and Spellbinders Large And Small Labels.  I used my Cameo and cut a ton of 9's and 0's and then layered them up to build my chipboard accent!  It's a BIG birthday!  Pretty Yellow and White Gingham Ribbon and Nuvo Crystal Drops in Dandelion Yellow.
 
Val should have a wonderful celebration.  I am sure she won't be thrilled with her invitations as her daughter announced her age to the world lol  It's BIG....she should have!  It's funny because up until now my Mom never knew how old she was.  Oh Val!
 
Thanks for Buzzing by!
 
Enjoy~~
