Forever Young BD Card

I have had a good day today, inside my house, getting work done, cooking, baking, cleaning and crafting.  It's too rainy and wet to do anything else.  I like these days sometimes!

I made this card with Forever Young.  I chose the yellow back ground because it was sitting on my work station from my project I'm working on for the monthly challenge already distressed.

I made an "oops" with the tags.  They were supposed to be purple underneath and the creamy paper on top.  I didn't realize what I did until it was too late!  I was able to resurrect it by taking out the letters and putting them on the cream and then another backing on the cream.  I think they turned out pretty good.  I love the little tag attacher to secure them.  How fun is that?  I like the idea of the old fashioned mirror for the girl to look into.  (My daughter really wants to get her hands on mine, the little rotter!)

I didn't think about the pattern in the dress until after I had cut it out.  I got lucky again there!  The image was cut right in the middle of the flower!  Woot woot!

Overall, I'm very happy with how it turned out.  I like to try new things if I can.  It keeps me from growing stale!

Another cart got used in my quest!  I wish I didn't have to work all of the time or I'm sure I could get them all used in short order!

See my new Cricut blinkie?  I just got that today!  I had zero idea how to get it put there, but an awesome Circle member showed me how.  I feel like a kid in a candy store!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love your card-- especially the distressed edges!

  2. I love that the mirroring turned out perfectly!
