A 90th Birthday — FMS261

We have a new sketch for you today over at the Freshly Made Sketches site, and this week our sweet Floridian friend, Cindy Hall, has a great sketch for us.  Take a look:

fms-final-261-001I think you could do just about anything with this sketch, don’t you?  I knew I needed to make a birthday card for my grandmother, who will be celebrating her 90th birthday next week.  What a milestone!  My extended family is hosting a big party for her, but as she’s over 400 miles away from where I live, I won’t get to attend.  So I wanted to make a special card for her.

grandmas-90thI pulled out the Number of Years stamp set and coordinating dies for this one.  I used a color palette of Rich Razzleberry, Cajun Craze,  Peekaboo Peach, Old Olive, and Pool Party.   The textured dsp is from the Fancy Frost Specialty dsp pack.

grandmas-90th-close-upI had to laugh when my seventeen year-old son saw this card.  His reaction was one of concern — “Isn’t it a little rude to put someone’s age on her card, especially when she’s that old?”  I had to explain to him that it may not be politically correct, but when you reach 90, it’s something to be celebrated and recognized.

We hope you’ll join us and make your own card for the sketch.  We love to see what you do with it as well.  Meanwhile, be sure to hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for a big helping of inspiration.  You’ll love what you see!

Enjoy your Wednesday!   Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love the card. I use this same stamp set this past weekend to make a 50th Birthday card for my friend. I used the gold glitter paper for the numbers as well.

  2. You are raising a very wise and sensitive young man! How thoughtful of him to ask! This card is fabulous and very ‘celebratory’, as it should be. I really like how you laid out the ribbon behind the panel without affixing it all flat. Really beautiful card, Amy. Sending love and warm wishes to your grandmother for her birthday and the coming year.
