Wishing you Sunshine & Adventures

Hi! Here's a card I made for my Nana. She was 90 years old last week, although she wouldn't thank me for telling anyone! That's why the card has no age on it...

Although her cycling days are over, my Nana used to love cycling all over the country with her dad and their cycling club, and her face lights up when she talks about those times. She has dementia now, and she doesn't always know who I am, but she remembers the old days, and I thought she might appreciate the sentiment on this card! She's also one of the happiest people I know, always singing. She is a little piece of sunshine.

 


The digistamp is from All Dressed Up, coloured with Promarkers. I added Stickles to the flowers for some sparkle. I punched some white flowers and coloured them to match her dress, and added gems. I used silver thread and silver daisy beads to the card backing the image.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
