A Birthday Rooster

My great Aunt will be turning 107 years old on July 10th, and this is her birthday card. She's always had a fondness for chickens and roosters and always had them running around happily on her former residence. I stamped a couple of these rooster images off when I was stamping with Mary Anne earlier this week, knowing exactly what I was going to use one of them for. The dsp is a very old piece from my stash by BoBunny and I embossed it with one of Mary Anne's ef's. I die cut the image and sentiment using SB labels 18 and 25 dies, & used the EK bricked punch and matted it with turquoise card stock. The lower border was done with a SNSS hearts die. A few black pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty were the finishing touch. I know she's going to love this one and I can't wait to help her celebrate her phenomenal birthday!

Wishing you all a fantastic evening and weekend! Thanks for stopping by :)

Oh Carol, your aunt is going to love this. I wish I could meet her, she must really be something. That bricked punch is very nice with the blue background. Your heart border is such a sweet element for a 107th B-Day card. You put a lot of love and effort into this card that's easy to see, although you do that with all of your cards.

Great that rooster and I'm sure she will too. Wish her a very Happy Birthday from me too.

Wowsa, 107!! Give her congrats from me! No wonder she deserves such a great card! Think I've got the chicken, just did it up for a friend who's chicken crazy, but she's not 107!

Your great aunt is sure to love this card. I remember when she turned 106 and it seems like no time time flies. A big birthday wish for her! I love that font and paper, as well as the proud rooster.
