Over the Hill.........

 We are heading to a 60th Birthday party today, and I wanted to share a card I made for my BIL. I saw the Inspirational Challenge at MFP, and thought it would be a great jump start for my card.


 I made the card 4 x 8 1/2, which fits into a business sizes envelope. My BIL is quite the gardener, so I added the flower accents from the set as well. That is a little strip of Gold Washi in the center. I added shimmer on the cake with the Sakura Gelly Roll pen.

 I added three flowers- one for past, present and future. 

 I am back up on the computer- my husband has loaded all of my programs and I will be catching up on commenting this coming week : )

Challenges:
MFP- Inspiration Challenge
Inkspirational- CAS


Thanks for stopping by!
