29 Again?

Hello... Happy Saturday!

Here's a little card I made for a girlfriend who is turing 35... yes, that's a tough one for some of us... the thought that you are now just five years from 40.... well... I guess it won't seem like such a bad thing in another 10 or 15 years. Right?

To create the card I started by creating a square card from cream cardstock and added a yellow damask mat (Teresa Collin's Carolina Breeze collection). I then cut and embossed the circle from kraft cardstock with Spellbinder's Splendid Circles (S4-354), placed a disc of patterned paper (Crate Farmhouse collection) underneath and adhered it to the card with dimensional adhesive. Lastly I embellished with two smaller cut/embossed circle dies and an assortment of flowers (Zva Creative, Michael's Stores Inc. and Jillibean Soup). Lastly I stamped the sentiment (Technique Tuesday), created the flag and added it to the card with leaf pins (Maya Road). Note: all edges are inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink (Ranger).


Well, I'm off to pack my bags for Arizona. Spellbinder's Design Team retreat is coming up quick... in just four days I'll be on a plane on my way there! I can not wait to get there to meet many new friends and be with such wonderful people from a great company.

Have a great one!

Gorgeous card Windy! I turned 46 last year so I should be really freaked out, but I am not! I actually have been feeling younger lately - must be doing something right :)
