OLW 32: Ages and Ages

Two weeks in a row.  I'm back at it.  I think.  Maybe.  We'll see.

During my hiatus of doing the one-layer Wednesday challenges change occurred.  Life became a bit hectic for Susan over at her Simplicity blog to continue posting the challenges on a weekly basis.  Then Jennifer Styles of Styles Ink came along to save the day.....she and Susan now alternate Wednesdays in hosting the OLW challenges.  

It's Jennifer's Wednesday this week and she came up with the theme of Ages and Ages.  We need to make a one layer "age" card.   Perfect!  I was lacking an idea for my last birthday card of the month which was for my brother in law.  After rumaging around, I came up with this:

I really liked the dry embossing around last weeks image in the OLW 31 challenge, so I decided to do it again!  I like how this turned out.   Image is from Inkadinkadoo and the sentiment is from Impress Rubber Stamps.  Love that sentiment....I usually use it on the insides of birthday cards, but it worked really well for this particular challenge.

Thanks for peeking!

Very, very nice! Like the embossed frame around the image.

Fabulous card - love the very cheery image. And the embossed line around is so elegant.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog - I'm particularly happy with the Christmas tree - check out my new "ages" card!!

What a cute image. Really do like the dry embossing. Must try that!

Hi Carol - tried your email link, but doesn't work.

Thanks for your lovely comments - so grateful for them. I love blogging - has become almost as addictive as the card making :)

Take care, Deborah x

This is a fabulous,festive and exuberant card!

What a wonderful idea for a birthday card.

And too funny, I'll be celebrating my 29th (again) in just a few months!

Thanks for playing along with OLW32!
