Grandad's 90th Birthday Card

Just what card do you give a 90 year old man for his birthday??? My Grandad is a lovely old man with a wicked sense of humour, so after consulting with my Gran I decided that I'd present him with Maude Doodlebuns! I'm sure he'll appreciate her and it will definitely make a change from the scenic cards that seem to be deemed fit for older gentlemen.


The image was a freebie from Just Inklined a few weeks ago. I've simply removed Maude's hat so that she not a "hot Christmas chick". I coloured her with Promarkers and then added Glossy Accents to her glasses, boots and lips and Stickles to her skimpys. She then been mounted onto a nesties oval which has been embossed and inked. I've made the card base from black card and have matted and layered gold glitter adhesive paper and black embossed card onto it. The stars have been punched using a Fiskars squeeze punch and the number 90 has been die cut with Tim Holtz Vintage Market Place.


The sentiment was generated on the computer.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Prairie Fairy Fridays - Star
Moving Along With The Times - Someone Special
