A Jubilee celebration.

Celebrations vary so widely, that I doubt that I will every grow tired of hearing about them. Last week, I was approached to prepare a card for a Jubilee of a nun. She has been a nun for 75 years and I was told the story of her life. A celebration it will be indeed.

Since I was just introduced to Jubilee, I went on searching and found that it is platinum. I do not have a platinum paper or materials readily, but I saw that the Brushed Silver card stock was a good match. The sketch from Mojo Monday 421 worked well for what I had in mind, although I did change the sketch a bit. A bit of heat embossing was applied to the bottom portion of the card. I used the Flowering Flourishes stamp set. I aimed at keeping the card simple, but I also want some details. A bit of Glimmer paper in silver for the numbers and also for the layer behind the black circle added a bit of pizzazz without being too much. The corners were adorned with the Curvy Corner Punch and I honestly cannot see anyone not adding this punch to their collection. The ribbon and perfect bow completed the looks of this card. I can hardly wait to hear if the nun liked her card.

Thank you so much for visiting today. Be well
