Bold Birthday

I created this card for someone turning 108 years young this month. She needs texture, large images, and loves flowers.

This card fits the Retro Rubber Challenge with the Tic-Tac-Toe grid.

My card fits the bottom line. I used Stampin’Up sets Special Reason from 2017 and Perfectly Penned from 2011. There are dies that fit the images in Special Reason, so that takes care of the dies. The texture is created with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder as well as heat embossing the greeting. The color blue is Balmy Blue in the cardstock which is peeking through the die cut flower on the white layer. Other texture is the lace I used on the front.

This will also be added to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Beautiful Blossom challenge.
