Debbie's mom is 90

This summer I have had a large number of requests for cards, especially for special occasions.  I enjoy doing such cards, but also feel some pressure to make sure they are indeed special.  Recently I discovered how much I like the classy look of ivory and black - now I  have a number of such cards to make.  I really like this scenic DP from Recollections - need to shop to find more like it!  The other cs is from my stash.  The only letter dies I have are this set by Olivia - a bit too large so I had to compress them for this layout.  The bird is a Cheery Lynn Little Wild things die, from Joan's Gardens.  The birthday sentiment is a 7Gypsies library stamp. The card is 4 3/4 x 6 1/4.
