There was a post on shared on my Timeline on FB about Winnie who was about to have her 100 Birthday but had wasn't expected to get any cards. Bit of a mistake to put on Facebook especially on crafters timelines.
This is the card I sent her, I made it with Avery Elle Numbered Balloons Die I do have the stamps too but I tried stamping and embossing in gold and the numbers weren't happy to be cut out. Lucky I had a scrap of gold card, can't believe I didn't use it in the first place. Found some gold twine for the balloons held together with the sentiment from Simon says Stamp Birthday Messages fishtail  banner.
To make it a bit fancy I used the Spellbinder Majesty die for background for the balloons, I see these are out of stock at the moment but there's no reason to have it there or even another fancy oval would look just as good. The main outside background is using the Simon Says Stamps Favourite Flowers but I stamped in gold and embossed with gold embossing powder.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
