Grandma's 99th Birthday

I know this card looks a bit bigger than my normal card.  It's acutally made to fit in a legal envelope.  Well, it's for someone special, and I wanted a lot of room to write, as well as make my husband put in his thoughts ;)  Jim's great-great grandma will be turning 99 on the 15th of this month.  She is super healthy and quite amazing.  I wanted to make her a special card, so I used the MojoMonday sketch challenge for this week as well.
Stamps:  Butterfly Wings, Birthday Wishes (CD Stamps)
Ink:  Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, So Saffron
Paper:  Sahara Sand, Sweet Slumber DSP
Accessories:  So Saffron ribbon, Scallop edge punch, Dew Drops, 2-way glue pen, 
Dazzling Diamonds glitter, circle cutter, Scallop Circle Nestabilities


  1. beautiful card!! I love butterflies.

  2. Pretty card! Love the great colors and the butterlies. TFS!

  3. This is so weird - I just sent out this size card to my sister -n- law today. I have been sending her a card everyday since she has been home recovering from surgery - so I have been mixing up the size and colors. This one looks so AWESOME! I love the color choices you made. 99 woo-hoo! I can't even imagine living to be 99! WOWZERS!

  4. Love it! The colors are just perfect and I love doing legal size cards sometimes. Love the butterflies and your grandma-in-law and I share the same birthday! Except I'll only be 31:)

  5. pretty, pretty, she will love it. It's very bold and the layout is really cool.

  6. So pretty, love the colours x

  7. So pretty! Love the colors and sparkly butterflies!
