This year, I thought I'd send her a thank you for my birthday card and gift using a photo she took of me wearing her sweater. She's also responsible for the "bowl" cut on my bangs...I mean literally. She put a bowl on my head and cut...oh my gosh...
At any rate, I used the Card Positioning Systems sketch218 for my card. I've flipped the sketch. I tried to make it a little bit modern...polka dots and the dots down the side and a little bit vintage, the Life's Portrait DP from Webster's pages and the scalloped oval to go with the vintage photo. I did some light distressing on the edges of the dp before sponging with Smokey Shadow ink.
I hope it makes her smile..she will be 80 years old this year. I think she was about 25 when that photo was taken. Time, precious time.
