Caardvarks - A card to DIE for

Firstly, thank you to all of you who left comments on Holly's card, it's given her such a boost and I think that is so important at her age.

Now onto the Caardvarks challenge, it was simply to use die cuts on a card. Well my mum asked me to make a card for her sister Ruth - nick named Foofie (it's a long story!) So here it is, probably a little too grungy for a 70 year old but she doesn't look or act 70 in fact I think she has more energy than I do!
I used my Sizzix stencil alphabet dies to cut the name. The photos a bit naff, it's so annoying this time of year, by the time I get home from work I have no natural daylight left for photography.
