Fabulous and 50!

I have two childhood girlfriends turning 50 this week so I made them this card. By looking at my friends you would never believe they are 50! At different times in my life they have been my best friends!  Even though life has taken us to different parts of the states we still stay in touch, thanks to Facebook.  Technology is great! It has allowed me to make lots of new blog friends too!  Ok, back to the card.

Cricut Paisley Cartridge
DCWV Dots and Stripes stack for patterned paper
DCWV Glitter Mat Stack for word and "50"
Recolletion flower for sandal
All other cardstock is from stash
Darice small foam squares
Xyron Sticker Maker and Adhesive
Ribbon from Joanns
White Sakura Gel Pen

I hope you are inspired by this cool, fun and simple card.  I am trying to remind myself to keep it simple.  I can make beautiful and still be simple.  Thanks for stopping by!

I am entering this card in the Getting Cricky with K Andrews Simply Sunday Challenge. Check out her blog, it's awesome!
