Happy 90th Birthday!

Hi!  I'm back for my second post today.  You'd think, with all the time I spent at my craft table this weekend...that I made a lot of cards, huh?  Nope.  My excuse is, um.  Quality over quantity.
Yes.  That's my story.  Ha :)

I made this card for an Aunt who will soon turn 90 years old.  And she sure doesn't look, or act, like she's almost 90.  In fact, 5 years ago we had a family picnic and my Aunt played bags for the first time.  Oh my.  She was awesome!  She beat nearly everyone there.  What fun :)

I'm playing along in 2 challenges with this special birthday card.

My card ~

It's been a while since I created using a bit of shabby chic, so this was a lot of fun.  I used some vintage crochet trim from my estate auction stash.  I used several dies and a bit of machine stitching.  Just a fun card to create.  I hope that my Aunt likes it as much as I do.
Thanks so much for spending a little time at my blog!
