Young At Heart






A friend of mine asked me to make a birthday card for her daughter's 50th birthday. The request was to make a card that was "kind of snarky". I hope this card fits the bill. The stamp is one I won several years ago in a challenge but had never used. I couldn't find where I won it or whom the artist is. If anyone knows please let me know and I will give them credit. I added liquid glass to the balloons, pearls, earrings, and buttons. The paper is from an old pad that has long ago lost it's cover. I used some pretty flowers from WOC and added leaves with a favorite die of mine that came from CC Designs. I love this die as it is a double die and you can use the curve of the cut to decorate either side of your card. The sentiments are from TLC and Ginger's House and both were freebies. The 50 is from a close out bin. 
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Little Bitty (Alan Jackson)
Have a little love on a little honeymoon
You got a little dish and you got a little spoon
A little bitty house and a little bitty yard
A little bitty dog and a little bitty car.

Well, it's alright to be little bitty
A little hometown or a big old city
Might as well share, might as well smile
Life goes on for a little bitty while.
