Special Order Card

My neighbor, Kay has an aunt who is having her 104th birthday in a couple of weeks.  Kay asked if I would make a special card for her, and I agreed.  Then, when I asked some questions about her aunt, what she enjoys doing, etc.  I'm told that she's an artist!  Talk about being intimidated!  LOL!

I emailed Kay some photos of cards I'd done and she like the birdhouse card the best.  I didn't intend to post this one on here because the smaller version was shown a few days ago.  Instead of making my usual A2 size card, this one is a 5 x 7.  The smaller size just didn't seem special enough for someone who's turning 104!

It's pretty much the same as the smaller version.  I used my Cuttlebug, SU bird and bitty punches for the images and did some inking.  The inside sentiment is printed on vellum and has a branch and flower across the top.
