Happy Birthday Card & some Babble

Hope everyone is having a good start to their Monday!!  I have a card to share with you that I made last night at the request of my Husband!!  :-)  Well... we all know when the Spouse actually requests you to go to your craft room... it's a no brainer!!  He has a very sweet eldery customer at his work that is turning 89 today.  She is the nicest Lady.  She brings my Hubby fine confectioners chocolates and homemade banana bread  and usually tops it off with some homemade crocheted washcloths for ME!!  I seriously think I have over 150 of these. (Anyone need some?)  She really enjoys making them.  Her favorite color is also BLUE.  She wears everything blue on a daily basis.  So with that in mind... here is my card that I made for her. 

I used the sketch from Karen over at Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 106 , I am also entering it at Paper Pals Art Challenge 82 - Use Scallops... and finally I am entering this at Creative Cutter Room.  Patriotic theme, 3d item, Banner/Flag, Button and Metal Embellishment.
Enjoy!  Thanks so much for all of your nice comments.  I read each and every one!!
Have a good day!!
