Could you live until you're 90...??

My mom has a dear friend who is turning 90 this year and I wanted to make her a very special birthday card. She is famous for her gardens and lives on one of the gulf islands. My mom and her count on each other for many things - people do that when you live far away. I am thankful for my mom's many friendships she has developed on her island. It truly is peaceful living. My card uses kiwi kiss, black, urban garden DP (SU!) and whisper white. I was able to use my nesties again and also tried my hand at dry embossing a grid on the upper 1/3 whisper white panel. I added a little bling by the greeting and popped up most of the layers. I wanted to use wide black ribbon but had to make do with old olive striped and added some small black knots. I followed a card done by Beate here . I just love her work. So clean and fresh. Well, happy stamping and don't forget to get crackin' on those christmas cards - time-is-a-tickin'. Thanks for stopping by.
