Betty 95

I made  this  card  for  a very  special lady  to celebrate  her  95th  birthday  ,  She is  my mothers cousin  . The background is Craftwork  cards  ombre paper  which  I  dry  embossed  with  a lattice  folder  .I  stamped  and  heat  embossed the  flowers  in  white on  the black  card  and coloured  with  Mica  Paints , (the  stamps  were  freebies  from  a  magazine  ). I  did  the  same with  the dragonflies  and  fussy  cut  them  .
I  cut  several  9s and  5s  using  a  cricut  cartridge  and  embossed  the  top layers  before  sticking  them together  .The  name  is  made  from  foam  sticky  letters  .
The  embellishments that I  used  are  card  candi  to  match  the papers ,sentiment  from  my  stash  and  plenty  of  C,C,  Spray and  Sparkle  iridescent  (this  works  so  well on  dark  coloured  card  ).

I  would like  to  enter  this  card into  the  following  challenge -------
