Happy 90th Birthdays!

It is time for another Hot Mess card and this is card number 7.   The idea of Hot Mess ~ Success started with Kelly and the general theme is to Get Messy and you will have Success!  Messiness can be almost anything that we come up with--glitter, alcohol inks, glimmer glitz, sponged backgrounds, etc., anything that is a bit messy.  We are a group of 4--Terry, Jeanette, Kelly and me. We will post a card each month on the 12th. Some times there is a theme-like this month.  And, other times we just get creative and messy! 

For this month's messiness, I issued a challenge to use red on the card.  I used Gina K Designs Gold Glitter Glitz Gel and a great stencil from Simon Says Stamp called Confetti for the background. I then cut the Stampin' Up Celebrate die three times from Gold Metallic and the number 90, also from Stampin' Up from Cherry Cobbler.  This card is going to a great couple, Dave and Jane, who are both turning 90 in a week-Jane on the 18th and Dave on the 22nd.  Dave is a retired AD that I have know for more than 25 years and they are such a sweet couple!  I hope they enjoy their card!

Here is the inside of my card, using the MFT Cheers Die:

Here are the links to the other members of Hot Mess ~ Success.  Please be sure to check out Jeanette's, Terry's and Kelly's blogs. I am sure you will enjoy seeing how everyone got messy and was successful in making some great cards!   We will all be back each month this year, so be sure to check back to see what we are up to on March 12th with the theme Terry provided!
