Bloomin' Heart birthday - 100 years young

Earlier this month was a first for me, celebrating the 100th birthday of a lovely resident at Mum's nursing care facility. Of course I wanted to make her a card & one worthy of such a wonderful milestone. I hope she liked it as much as I enjoyed making it for her.

Thank goodness for the beautiful & coordinated Number of Years stamps & Large Numbers dies.
I really think everyone needs a great number set & this is my fave collection ever thanks to the size, font & coordination between the stamps & dies & I've used them so much.

Anyhow, back to the card, I stamped the numbers in versamark & blushing bride ink then clear embossed them for a lovely shine.You might be able to see it in this pic.

After using the gorgeous, detailed Bloomin' Heart dies on my fave 50th wedding anniversary card I knew they'd be a perfect pairing here too. I offset a white & blushing bride heart so some of the blushing bride peeked through, then added some blushing bride flowers from the same die set (lightly curved for dimension) with pearl centres & really love the effect.

I love blushing bride & mint macaron together so I used mint for the base & a pretty mint & white print paper from the Blooms & Bliss designer series pack.

I had to sneak a banner & some vellum on there too, to ground the 100 on the card. Have you noticed how often I use banners & vellum? Love!

I carried the theme to the inside with more paper, flowers & a stamped sentiment from the Birthday Blossoms set.
