90th birthday card

Today is my mothers' 90th birthday, quite
a milestone! We celebrated yesterday with 
family at a nearby restaurant. I like to 
personalize special cards with photos. The
photo of my mother was taken in WW2, when
she was in the army, before children, 
grandchildren and great children. During the
week I made her a scrapbook album about her life,
 which was a big hit when I gave it to her at the 
restaurant yesterday.
I made the card with die cuts, SB paper,
paper flowers, ribbon, peel offs  and used a 
MS punch for the border.
