Happy 200th Birthday!

A couple of years ago, my sister-in-law & brother-in-law held their 100th birthday party (their ages totalled 100), which I thought was hilarious.  So last spring, it somehow occurred to me that my sisters & I would be celebrating our 200th birthday this year!  We tried hard to organize a trip to Vegas, but it was too hard to coordinate... however, I didn't want the occasion to pass without being acknowledged :o)  So I've knit them each a scarf, and made a fun 200th bday card to put in the parcel.  I'm using this week's Color Throwdown Challenge colours, and The Sketchbook Saturday sketch:
Patterned papers are Life of the Party, Basic Grey; Cardstock is White Daisy, CTMH; Buttons CTMH; Ink is Outdoor Denim, CTMH; Pinwheel die & Sentiment, L'il Inker Designs.
