More Milestone Birthdays (65 and 100!)

Hi, guys!  Hope your day is going well.  I thought I would share with you two cards I made on Sunday.  I was asked by a friend to make a card for her best friend's 65th birthday.  She let me create whatever I wanted.  It was a lot of fun to make.  This background stamp I used is an older one by Stampin' Up that I just LOVE.   I heat embossed the background with white powder to set it off against the dark paper.

Paper: Stampin' Up, Ranger Speciality Stamping 
Ink: Archival, Versamark
Misc: White Embossing Powder, Tim Holtz numbers, flower, gem
Die: Deckle Rectangle Spellbinders

The next card I am sharing with you was made for a friend of mine who is celebrating her friend's 100th birthday!  Talk about a milestone birthday!  It was the first time I have made a card for someone turning 100 and it was a hoot and a privilege.   I had free reign on this card as well so I decided to keep it simple with some bright colors and easy to read numbers.  I used acrylic numbers and colored them with my Copic markers to match the ribbon.

Paper: Gina K Designs White,  Husk Note Card Ink Pad NYC
Ink: Archival
Misc.: Flower, Gem, Acrylic Numbers, Ribbon, Swiss Dot embossing folder

I really love making cards for birthdays, and when they are such special occasions I am very tickled and honored.  Hope your day is a great one and that you find a few moments to do something you love.  I know I plan to carve out a bit of "me" time tonight.
