Ivene's 100th Birthday!

Close Up of Shimmer on Ivene's 100th Birthday Card!

My twin sister Margie and I have been invited to our Godmother Ivene's 100 Birthday Party :-)  Now that is a HUGE accomplishment !  I had so much fun using my new SU "Number of Years" stamp set along with the SU Large Numbers Thinlits Die Set.  The stamp set has 29 photopolymer stamps and the Die set has 11 Dies.  Both very versatile!

I used SU stamp pads and markers and my MISTI to color and place the images exactly where I wanted them.  I then added Wink of Stella to the tiny flowers and painted "gold" Viva Inka Gold over the So Saffron die cut numbers.  The flowers and numbers shine beautifully.  So pretty IRL!

Isn't Ivene a classic tough Norwegian born in North Bend, Oregon ?!?  Love you Ivene !

My card is for 2 favorite Challenges:
