80 year old whiskey

One of the guys at work is going to his grandmothers 80th birthday party this weekend and asked me to make her a card.  I asked him what sort of things he would like on the card and he said "put some of that doily stuff on it" pointing at the lace on another card I had made.  "Oh, and she likes whiskey".   That was my brief for this card.

I have matted some red/very dark pink design paper on to brown card and then added lace.  I have been playing with my label die cuts and altering to see what other shapes I can come up with.  I quite like the tag shapes I have made, so I used one here.  I have tied the top with dark red lace and finished off with flowers, glitter glue, leaves and peel offs.

It's a simple card, but Ian was really please with it.  I hope his grandmother is too.

I am entering this card for the following challenges:
A spoon full of sugar - Anything goes
Everybody Art - Tags
Papertake weekly - Bloom and grow
