This is a birthday card requested by a dear friend for her Mom's ninetieth birthday. I'm really hoping she likes it. The image is from Isabella's Scrapbook. I believe it was the first digi I ever bought. I still really love it. I colored it with Copics and the papers are from Stampin' Up. the dots on the dress were done with a white pen. I added glitter to the flowers, which shows only slightly in the photo.
Now for the story of how it came to be. I colored the image, which included flowers growing under the watering can. I put the entire card together, including gluing on the flower arrangement in the corner. When I was all done I looked at it and realized the corner looked extremely cluttered with the flower image and the glued on flowers. I was not happy at all. I had to make a quick decision before the glue dried. I took the card completely apart, trying not to cause too much damage. I put the image into my photo program, removed the flowers and reprinted it. After coloring the image a second time I glued everything back together. I'm happy with how it turned out now.
I found the perfect sentiment in my Hallmark program.
"Those who fill their years with love
can count their age in blessings."
Here's to more journeys,
more songs to be sung,
more ways to be blessed
when ninety years young.
