For my project I made a Birthday card. I am sorry for the poor image as I had to use my camera and I need a new one but I couldn’t get a good scan of it. In the photo it doesn’t really look it but the image is on silver foil and the scanner light just reflected in it so I couldn’t get a good image. The lettering on the outside is also silver. I know I put “Reflections on Aging” but I didn’t mean that kind of reflection…LOL.
I wanted to open it slightly so you can see the hidden image.
Inside: Not the tags in the envelope on each side.
With the tags up so you can see the hat and dress.
I was hoping you could read the inside but to save you the strain of trying to see it I will type it out.
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised. *
So my dear friend, why not practice with me?
We shall both wear purple with our red hats
And practice doing these things that don’t suit us.
Because growing old does not mean growing obsolete.
With age comes a wisdom the young will never know.
