All That Jazz!

Today's card was made in honor of an amazing lady in my husband's family who will be turning 98 on July 4th!

This sweet soul continues to live alone and maintaining her independence with grace and a sound mind.  As we visited with her yesterday, we were in awe as she told stories of long ago or of just yesterday - all with complete accuracy.  If you are like we are, we have trouble remembering what we had for supper the night before!

For her special card this year, I selected C. C. Designs, 20's Gals, which she immediately said reminded her of Betty Boop, as she chuckled.

I also incorporated a weekend sketch challenge as I put the card together after coloring the image. 

I used a gray 6" x 5" card base and covered it with the pink floral paper cut 1/4" smaller.  The scalloped edged tags were perfect for adding the decorative edge peeking around the circular image. I stamped the sentiment (from Stampendous)  then taped it so that each edge was die cut to fit the larger banner tag.  After securing all the layers, I then added the three deep red enamel dots and the tiny white pearl on her necklace to complete the card.

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog. I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to 'Follow' my blog and to visit my site - "Not Just Scraps' on Facebook - where you can purchase my cards.
