Vintage card for a friend

I didn't make the cut at G45, but the love affair with their paper continues.  I decided to make a Tri-fold Shutter card with their Curtain Call.  I love all the different patterns on it, especially the peacock feathers.

I used the Cricut cartridge Forever Young for the two women images on the end.  And, of course, they needed a little bling on their clothes!

The quote reads, "Allow yourself to Trust Joy and embrace it... You will find that You Dance with everything.  Emerson" and is from Quick Quotes.  Everything else is cut out of Curtain Call paper.  

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Lara and I went for a walk with a girlfriend of mine today.  We stopped by a park on our way back and she was in heaven.  So was I... I dressed her up in a new outfit she got from her great-grandma and I got some totally cute pictures to scrap :)   Her laugh is so contagious.  You can tell she was having so much fun.

Tomorrow, she and I have a field trip w/ her preschool to our local community college's Zoo. Hopefully I'll remember my camera this trip to the zoo!  Now, what to dress her in...  Did I mention it's in the 80s today?  I'm thinking a dress, IF she'll agree to it.

See ya tomorrow,

Gorgeous card! There's lots of green usually at zoos, so choose sth that goes well with that!!!! I can't choose clothes for Mia any longer, except for giving her the clothes I don't want her to wear and leaving the ones I prefer somewhere easy to reach! She usually goes for those!

This style of card is one of my favorites because there's so much to look at, and you've definitely now designed one of my favorite versions!

The monotone quality and Forever Young cuts and beautiful G45 papers ... you're brilliant!

They're *crazy* to not choose you! :)
