92nd birthday

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs

I am very late this morning, but better late than never LOL. 

I made this card for my friend to give to one of her friends, a 92 year old lady who loves football (her son is a well know footballer/manager of yesteryear) and dancing. Even at 92 she still dances around her kitchen to the music on the radio!

I only had 24 hours notice to make it and deliver, so imagine how mortified I was to see a glaring error on the photograph I took, and it was far too late to do anything about it :o(

Happily, the recipient was absolutely delighted with it and even thought the mistake 
was funny!
I was told the lady didn't like fussy, and this certainly isn't that!
I googled 1920s dancing for the inside. I must say those intrepid ladies dancing on the rooftop make me a tad queasy!!!
I used the Papyrus font for all of the text.
Basecard is my usual white linen from The Range, folded and cut to nearly 6x6.
Other card used is pewter textured from PDA.
Not a lot else I can say about it, except that I am a lot more careful now before printing 
stuff out :o)

What a great card! Even better considering how long you had to plan and deliver it! Didn't spot the mistake at first! Still great though! I might borrow that idea for my FIL who is 95 this year

This really is fabulous and must have been so well received with all the personalisation of the date! AND... I would never had noticed where the mistake was if I hadn't read your other post first! See what I get by playing catch up?? hehe!
