You're Never Too Old to Dream a New Dream

For the Krafty Girls Feelin' Lucky post, click here

Hello my treasured friends!

I have a quick card to share with you today! School has eased a little bit since the beginning of the stressful week, so yay! We're mid way through the week, and that means that the weekend is almost here! :) Here's a card that I created for a friend's birthday - he loves history, travelling, and collecting gems. I tell him that he shouldn't be in the business field, and that he should be a historian instead haha. If only we could all pursue what we were truly passionate about huh? Life is short, so do what makes you happy! :) 

The inside is stamped with a Pink By Design sentiment:

I'll be entering this into Celebrate the Occasion's Birthday Challenge with Bling, and I'll be linking this up to Pink Cricut's Link Up Party

Trail of Treasures:
  • Card Base - cut in navy cardstock at 5.5 x 4.25", outlined in gold gel pen
  • Card Layer - cut at 5.25 x 4", patterned paper from DCWV Tradewinds Stack, distressed using Tim Holtz Walnut Stain and Tea Stain Distressing Inks, added navy specialty twine 
  • Globe - cut at 3.5" from Locker Talk in gold and silver foil cardstock, added irock gems
  • Sentiment - from Pink By Design July 2011 Believe in Yourself Stamp of the Month

Remember, you're never too old to dream a new dream! :) 

Until next time's treasures,
