Birthday Card for My Co-worker

My co-worker's birthday was on Mother's Day this year. While I didn't see her that day, I knew that I would see her on Monday and so decided to try my hand at another card. Because she absolutely LOVES purses and sunglasses, I decided to pull out my Forever Young cartridge (the one I had no intentions of buying) and this was the result. What you probably can't see in the picture is that the red paper used for the lettering, the flower, and the bottom mat is quite shiny. I later learned that acetate would have worked perfectly for the lenses of the glasses, and now that I think about it, I could have applied black paint to a transparency too! Either would have worked just as well.
Thanks for looking!


  1. Very cute card!

    Like you I was not going to buy this cartridge, but it arrived in the mail yesterday. I know I will use it when doing some layouts of my almost 15 year old granddaughter.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog.

  2. Beautiful card I am sure your co-worker loved it. Perfect cartridge for a person who loves purses and sunglasses tfs.
