R.I.P. Youth Card


A very dear friend of my husband's will be celebrating his 70th birthday this year.  I wanted to make something fun for him.  After digging through all my Cricut cartridges I knew I had to do this vulture from Life's a Party.  Isn't he cute?  All the cuts (card base, tombstone, coffin & vulture) are from the Life's a Party cartridge.  I used lots of scraps, a silver pen to write "youth" on the coffin & to add some accents, a wiggle eye for fun, black Cat's Eye chalk ink to tone it all down.  I think he will like it!

Thanks for looking!
