A 100th Birthday!

Once in a while I get asked to do a card... and this time I was asked to make a card for someone's 100th birthday!!! Wow!

Well, she wanted the card to be very large, didn't want any images on the card and she just wanted the number 100 in the centre. This was really out of my comfort zone, a big challenge .... I don't like to do very large cards and I've never made a card without any stamps before, but anyway seeing how important it was for her, I tried and this is what I managed to do .... and SHE loved it ... ME ? well, Ok I think.. What do you think?


I printed the number 100 from a Word document on pink and white card and then cut them out with my scissors. The sentiment is also computer generated.

I thought my card was just perfect for this week's challenge at Charisma Cardz which is MAGIC NUMBERS, more magical than this can't really get :))

and I would like to enter my card in these challenges as well ....
