Ninety-Seven!

Imagine being both mentally sharp and physically spry at 97! I recently saw a picture of just such a woman on facebook. Her daughter was requesting cards be sent to her to celebrate attaining that age. So this is what I came up with:

The striped designer series paper is from the neutrals pack. Using some Blendabilities, I merely colored in the white stripes with the two colors I planned to use for the flower: Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi. I chose the darkest shades of those colors, using the pink to color a strip of Whisper White satin ribbon, a width we no longer carry. However, we do carry the Pink Pirouette in Seam Binding Ribbon.

I just love the Remarkable You stamp set! Granted, for this card I chose to do a lot of fancy cutting with my Paper Snips (they are such great little scissors for cutting details). I also cut out the numbers. I fear that set (Memorable Moments) is also discontinued. Such a versatile set!
