90th Birthday Invite!!

I hope I live to be 90!  My grandfather will be celebrating his 90th Birthday next month.  He is such a wonderful man that I am so glad to have in my life.  He has always believed in me and made me feel special.  So, as you can guess, I loved creating his 90th Birthday invites.

My mother's main requirements for the card were that it have a fish on it and blues/greens.  He has always been an avid fisherman.  So, after a  few prototypes, this is the one that we all agreed on.  Due to sending 45 of these in the mail, I kept the embellishments fairly easy on this card.  I used 2 hole puches and did a slip though "bow".  This added visual appeal with not a lot of bulk.

All of the product used is Close to My Heart.  However, the patterned paper and ribbon have been retired for awhile.  I have been keeping them in my stash for just the right project.
