Birthdays and quilts

This card is for No Time To Stamp's Stamp Simply challenge #70: Senior Citizens Rule! Sharon's birthday was on January 16th and for this challenge one is to make a card that will appeal to a senior citizen--all in good fun!

My base card is Kraft (love it!) with a layer of Old Olive, a layer of Blue Bayou (retired In Color), and DP from Making Memories called Kraft Mixed Dot. The focal image is from Papertrey Ink's Quilter's Sampler set and is stamped on Neenah Solar White with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored with Copics (see picture below for colors used). I then sponged the edges pretty heavily with Close To Cocoa, used the corner rounder punch on it's corners and on the Old Olive layer and then matted it with Blue Bayou. It was attached with 3M foam squares. The sentiment is from the same set. It was stamped on the same paper with Blue Bayou, sponged, matted with Blue Bayou, and is also up on 3M foam squares. A little quilt square from PTI's Quilter's Sampler Additions is popped up on the corner of the sentiment. A Blue Bayou double stitched ribbon was added with a button from my stash tied on with waxed linen thread.

With it's vintage feel and the quilt theme going on, I think a senior citizen would like this card, don't you?

Thanks for dropping in!
