You Know You're Old When ...

I have made this card for my Aunt who is turning 60 this week ... she has a great sense of humour so I when I was this image by Bugaboo Stamps I knew I had to use it on her card! I have printed Stella out and coloured her with Copics adding touches of glitter and glaze to her glasses. I have mounted her with DB Swimming Pool CS added to base with 3d foam. The sentiment is also by Bugaboo but I changed the font to suit my needs; this has been printed directly onto a sheet from the DCWV The Linen Closet Stack and then also added to base with 3d foam pads. The base is a layer of Bazzill Kraft CS followed by a layer of DB Dragonfly CS then another sheet from The Linen Closet Stack. Elegant Peacock Seam Binding wrapped around and tied in a bow using the Bow Easy. The 'Happy Birthday' is rub ons by Bazzill Basics and the '60' has been cut out using the Sizzix Sizzlits Girls Are Weird alpha set and then glittered with DB ultra fine glitter. Bazziil Jewels added to finish. I hope she likes it!
