Nana's 100th birthday

OK back to normal - Sarah at work asked me to make her nana a birthday card for her 100th birthday -  I don't think I'll be asked to make many of those!

Describing what she liked it was knitting, tea and cleaning.  I had an idea of what I wanted to make and looked around for some vintage style images.  We decided tea would be the best way to go because she lives off tea (and an occasional sherry).  The image we chose is from Project Printable - FRIENDS Quote TEAPOT Tea Cups.  I've added some almond ProMarker to the image to give it a more vintage look and some amber self adhesive gems.

Papers which were distressed are from Lili of the Valley/Raspberry Road Pressed In Time, Antebellum and Docrafts Papermania - Madame Payraud's.

The sentiment was home made/printed because Sarah wanted specific words - then cut out with a Spellbinders die and mounted onto black card.

The flowers and leaves are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live & Love Crafts.

Final touches to the card are some silver butterfly beads and a brass swirl which I found on Amazon, 100th in black glitter letters and some pearl self adhesive gems from Hobby Craft.

Sarah gave her card to her nana yesterday and she absolutely loved it saying "ain't she clever" :)
