Bright 65th Grandma card

Good morning campers!!

Its a bit better day here weather wise and Robino is off work so we have loads to do! Today we are sorting Ross's bedroom and hoping to clear a space to get him a desk for his homework.

I have been asked to make a few cards for people recently and today is the first of them. This is for a lady at the Cricket Club whose Mum is turning 65. She wants a card from her and hubby (will show that another day) and a card from her children - see below!!!

I had the Sweet and Sour papers out from another card I was making so I decided to use them up.

The stamp set is of course All in the Family which I havent used for a while. Colour combo of Pumpkin Pie and Melon Mambo

I love the Broadsheet alphabet but it would have been too much to stamp the whole word in it so I opted for the first letter and then the rest with the Just Perfect alphabet.

Added the 65 using the Timeless Type alphabet (love it) and I even inked round the edges - check it out Victoria!!

Finished it off with lots of butterflies from the Beautiful Wings embosslit!

COme back tomorrow for another Bright card!!
