Birthday Blessings

I was recently asked to make a birthday card for a friend, and of course I said yes.   I didn't discover until later that the card was for her friend who is celebrating her 100th birthday!   How thrilled to take part in this special occasion!  

I fell in love with this PTI set "Lovely Layers" the first time I saw it.  I guess I wasn't the only one because it was on backorder for a while.  I chose fall colors for my palette:

On the inside, I used a digital SU sentiment 

I also used a circular greeting from Desert Diva and modified the design with Photoshop adding the "100".  I used distressed inks which coordinated beautifully with my design paper and sponged the same moss green ink on my embossing.  The sentiment is from the Vintage Filigrees Fancies collection, Amazing Paper Grace Stamps.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, I always appreciate your comments and support!

This is gorgeous, Marsha! I like how you decorated the inside too, and personalized it with the 100. What a privilege to make such a special card :-)
