Birthday Card

I can now share this card, since the recipient has now seen it!

Unfortunately, all she’s seen is the pictures, as the card is lost somewhere between here and Holland.  Good old Royal Mail.

 

The colours are inspired by Jenny Joseph’s poem, Warning…

When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth
