Lorraine I used to regularly be asked to make a lady a card I started at 97 and I think the last one I made, for obvious sad reasons was her 104th birthday!
I love your 100th card, it is just perfect for the occasion. The lattice in the background really gives the card a classy feel.

Hugs Erika. x
