90th birthday card

Evening all :)

I had a lovely surprise last night, my boyfriend came home for the weekend, he wasn't supposed to be home til next week some time, so I'm happy :) We watched lots of DVDs and had Scraps the cat sitting with us too, although she's not a big fan of males at all, but she settled after a while and allowed Anthony to pet her :)

Anyway, the last post I made was for a card that I'd made as part of a selection for my friend to choose her favourite from for her gran's 90th birthday, and this is the one she chose in the end :) her gran loves baking apple pies, so one of the things she suggested for a card was apple pie, so I found this image from Meljen's Designs and this is what I came up with :)

The image as I mentioned above is Meljen's Designs, I printed the sentiment out myself (this one didn't go on the final card, one saying Happy 90th birthday gran went on instead :P) the ribbon, gems and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the swirls are a Marianne D die and the papers are Papermania.

A closeup of the image, coloured with Promarkers, I put Glossy Accents on the apples and Stickles on the ribbon and steam.

My flowers, also edged with Stickles.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

So that's me, 
Thanks for looking and nighty night
