Grandma's 96th Birthday

Hey Everyone!  Thanks for stopping by to check out another one of my cards.  This card is a very special one.  Anytime you get to make cards for a 96th Birthday is incredible honour.  I look forward to making her a card for each of her birthdays.  It's a thing Ive been doing for my Grandma for her last 6 birthdays, and I can't wait to make her one next year too!

This card was a great one!  As I made this card and was trying to decide how to put this onto the card front, I realized that the number is the same both ways.  But finally I decided on this way!

I also thought that it would be a good time to play along with the Seize the Birthday Challenge, so I entered this card in that challenge.
