Vintage, So Much Nicer Than Old

Happy BBTB2 Monday.  I am going to open with an apology.  I have been busy for the last month with a special project and have been neglecting my blog(s) just a bit. My blogs and followers really are important to me so I promise to make improvements.

My first project for this week is a birthday card I made using Forever Young.  The challenge cut at BBTB2 is the dress form on FY.  I used the dress form and other FY elements to create a vintage birthday card.  I cut the cute swing dress, the fabulous hat, shoes and the VINTAGE label from FY. 

I matted my cuts on four layers of cardstock, two solids and two prints, and embellished with pearls.  I cut the card and the matting layers with Just Because Cards.  I have told you how much I love JBC haven't I???

The inside of the card contains the phrase "So Much Nicer Than Old" and the phrase is mounted on two layers of matting.  I simply need to add a birthday greeting and the card will be ready to present to a special "Vintage" birthday girl.
