80 Years

Hi All in Blogland todays card is for my lovely Mum can you guess her age?!
I used the Cardmadfairy image Lulu (isn't she sweet?) and printed her out three times reversing the image so they weren't all the same. I was planning to stick them all on the number but it was a bit too much which is why it turned into a double fronted card.
The only reason for the three images is that I have two sisters and wanted to represent all of us on the card. My Mum was a teacher and writer which is why I chose the Tim Holtz handwriting paper on the front and as I didn't have any blue flowers to match I followed a tutorial by Bev and coloured some Wild Orchid ones with Alcohol Inks.
The challenge over at Cardmadfairy this time is to add a number to your project. I can't wait to see which numbers you have added.
I am also entering the following: card for a woman you love Anything goes happy birthday Anything goes with spooled item birthday always anything goes birthday  Sketch and/or for Mom
