90 years young

Here's a card I've made for my Auntie who will be 90 years young in a couple of weeks, 

 She's a lovely lady and my sisters and I have a special place in our hearts for our Auntie (and Uncle who sadly is no longer with us).  They have always been pleased to see us, whatever time of day or evening when we've popped in on them - there was and still is always a cup of tea and a piece of auntie's boiled cake on offer.  

Many a time we have 'gate-crashed' their holidays by hiring a caravan on the same site without them knowing or shared a beach hut when it rained lol.  (God we sound like the worlds worst relatives), but these were some of our best times and we have good memories of growing up with my cousins.  We all still meet up for birthdays and other special occasions and we will all be getting together for Aunty's birthday of course (but we have been invited this time - we won't just be turning up lol!).  

Anyway back to the card.  A simple 8 x 8 scalloped blank card  with squares cut from both a fairly dark lilac slightly metallic card and a linen effect white card,  The dies I have used are from Tonic. Deco Frame 'Emily'.  I used a slightly lighter lilac card for this.  The numbers in the middle are from a stamp set from Pinflair, really nice set of numbers.  I may put a little gem or a pearl on the corners but the jury's still out on that one.  

Let me know what you think.  Thanks for popping by, hope to see you again soon.
