Almost 40

This is a birthday card using the sketch from the Clean and Simple blog, and the color challenge from the Paper Players blog. I guess I have birthdays on the brain - my 40th is coming up very very very soon (sigh). Getting older was always something that happened to other people, but now I cannot ignore the signs that it is happening to me as well. But then again, they say that life begins at 40, and every day that God gives us is a reason to celebrate!

I am so into the quilling technique right now, and this card was bouncing around in my head for a couple of days, and early this morning it finally came together. I used grosgrain white ribbon for the balloon strings, and added liquid pink pearls on the sentiment strip.

Thanks for looking!

Great Job, Brenda, inspiring as usual. 40 is SMALL potatoes. lol. Add a score to that for me this year (note I didn't say the #). I agree that God blesses it all.
