You're only a Kid Once

Wow, another birthday in my craft group. I'm having fun making these "old" cards:) This one today I will enter at Card Patterns for sketch #161.

The sketch:  Current Sketch

My card:
The DP is My Mind's Eye Street Market-love this double sided cardstock! I recently bought somemore of it on clearance at Michaels-I wouldn't want to run out! I stamped the image (from Inkadinkadoo mini stamp set) with Memento Rich Cocoa on Gina K white cardstock (such nice cardstock!). I added the birds from Close to My Heart "summer Breeze" stamped with Tuxedo Black ink.  I colored with Copic markers, adding in the sky and watter. I cut it out with Spellbinders Classic Circle dies and matted it, first with some green cardstock, then on a back mat cut with Spellbinders Renaissance hearts. Added some gold corner stickers and a gold sticker border.
For the inside of the card I did the rest of the saying on the computer as the stamped words were waaaaayyy to small-they got lost on the background! I cut the saying out with Spellbinders Big Scalloped Squares and added some of the DP behind it to match the front of the card.


Hope you like! Comments always welcome.
