Senior Citizens Rule!!!

Happy Birthday Sharon!!! Since Sharon (notimetostamp) is turning one year older, she has decided to celebrate all things Senior Citizen (Senior Citizens Rule!) with her weekly Friday challenge--ssnotime70.

This is not a birthday card, but a get well card for an elderly friend. I thought that a bird image would be a suitable as my husband always jokes around that he doesn't feed the birds--he's not a senior citizen quite yet! So I guess that means that senior citizens like birds! Or feeding them in any case...hehe--actually, I'm quite a bird person myself, and not even 50 years old!

I used this lovely bird from Our Daily Bread Designs Sing to the Lord set. I stamped it onto Neenah Classic Cream with Memento Tuxedo Ink and Copic colored it. Nestabilities die cuts frame the image panel out, with K and Company Classic K Margo pad providing the decorator paper touch.

I finished the card off with a PaperTrey Ink sentiment diecut with Cuttlebug dies stamped with Versafine Black Onyx--my "go-to sentiment ink"--and Sheer Creations ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!

This is sooo pretty, Deb...Perfect for any age!! The image is gorgeous and I love the colors and design!! My parents are in their upper 80's...they told me the other day that the thing that really makes them feel old is that their daughters are getting to be old ladies!! Hummmmm...I guess senior citizens really do rule!!
