50th Birthday Card & Gift

I count my fabulous co-worker as a friend. I tease her mercilessly about being "old" but her exuberance surpasses my own!

In homage to her "prime" during the 80s, I used MFT's Cassette Tape die and coordinating stamp set.


So fun! I layered some chipboard to really make the cassette pop!


 As a gift, I created a "50 Tunes for 50 Years" mix (not on cassette). It took up two CDs and so I threw them into a double DVD case and decorated an insert.


There's some stamping on the back but not worth an extra photo. ;)


Thanks for peeking!
