There are not very many people that live into their ninties, but I have a wonderful lady in my life that has.  She is my sister’s grandmother-in-law and the sweetest person you could ever know.  This month she is turning 95 and she has more energy than most people I know. My sister asked me to design a special card for her and this is what I came up with.

A Very Special 95th Birthday Card

The card idea from Anne Hewins at

I have always loved the Vintage Leaves stamp set but never thought of using pink and purple with it until I saw Anne’s. I added gold accents to mine and really like how it turned out.
